The colours and strange shapes of the sandstone rocks come alive at sunset.

A bit of history about Cape Leveque:

“It is thought the Aboriginal people may have come to this part of the continent somewhere between 5000-7000 years ago after the last ice age. The sea level rose and formed King Sound and the many hills and mountains became islands of the Buccaneer Archipelago.

The local inhabitants, the Bardi Aboriginal people are people of the sea. Turtle, dugong and fish make up a large part of their diet. Aboriginal people of the Cape Leveque area would have had contact with visitors such as Indonesian and Macassan fishermen and they might have sighted European explorers such as William Dampier when he sailed into what is now King Sound. Names like Cygnet Bay, Swan Point and Buccaneer Archipelago all belong to this time.

William Dampier's visit was the earliest known white contact that foreshadowed an industry two centuries on that was to play a large part in the region's development. He too discovered the lustre of the pearl.

One visitor however was the French ship Geographe in 1803 captained by Nicholas Baudin. Aboard was the hydrographer Pierre Leveque whose name the Cape now bears.”
