The Cape Leveque Road is a regional Western Australian road that runs through pindan woodland for 202 kilometres (126 mi) between Broome and Cape Leveque on the Dampier Peninsula. The road is bitumened from south of Beagle Bay to the northern towns, and the unsealed southern section is often closed during the wet season when flooding makes it impassable. The section between Broome and Beagle Bay is generally maintained poorly and is quite corrugated.
The road is vital for servicing communities on the Dampier Peninsula and is also a popular tourist attraction. The road is maintained by the Shire of Broome.
