Middle Lagoon/Cape Leveque (7-10 July)

A 2 hour drive took us to Middle Lagoon, situated 2/3 of the way up the Dampier peninsula. Here we stayed for 4 nights, including a day trip up to Cape Leveque. Middle Lagoon was a lovely quiet spot. There is a beach under a ridge facing the ocean and a lagoon which was slightly more sheltered. We took it in turns choosing which beach we would dig and relax at. I think the favourite spot became the lagoon.

As we could have a fire, we had more scones and a roast lamb, as well as a damper (not all in the same evening!). The sea temperature must have been a little warmer because Alex actually swam for more than a minute...

We kept up with the sticky-beaking of all the camper trailers around, and I'm beginning to wonder whether they'd really make packing up much easier. Most of the trailers which catered for 2 adults and 2 kids either had a separate annexe that had to be attached or had a huge tent incorporated into it, both seemed to take people ages to pack away.

Middle Lagoon -Cape leveque
We are planning a trip from Shepparton Victoria to the Kimberleys and are wanting to spend the last week at Broome/Cape Leveque and are wondering whether we can bring our Off road jayco camper into Cape leveque or are we better to stay at Middle Lagoon. We seem to be getting mixed messages about the road into Cape Leveque and Middle Lagoon. We are happy to stay at Middle Lagoon in our van and do a day trip to Cape Leveque but don't want to ruin our van or trip so need to be prepared. Look forward to your response.
