Relaxation, Recreation and Pioneering Spirit

From the pristine white sands of Cable Beach to its bustling centre, Broome is a vibrant and popular town on the far-western shores of the Kimberley. Offering a combination of relaxation and recreation, Broome has a rich and fascinating past that includes a pioneering pearling industry, a land where dinosaurs walked (their footprints can still be seen!), and a fusion of Japanese and Chinese cultural impact. Rich in beauty, laid-back coastal atmosphere, and historical merit, Broome is a drawcard for adventure seekers of every age, pace and ability.

Don’t miss …

A sunset camel ride is at the top of most Broome bucket lists, but there’s a lot more to Broome than stunning Cable Beach to keep you occupied. This little outback beach town packs a whole lot of wonder into its little slice of Kimberley paradise. Take a hovercraft to visit dinosaur footprints dating back 130million years, visit a working pearl farm, cruise the ocean for a chance to catch a glimpse of the rare Subfish Dolphin, or take an Aboriginal walking tour for a firsthand account of the shire’s significance from an indigenous perspective. Top Tip: The ‘Staircase to the Moon’ where the rise of the full moon over Roebuck Bay at low tide, gives the illusion of glowing stairs, is not only a showstopping natural phenomenon … it’s the best freebie in town!

Accommodation and Amenities

With tourism as its chief economy, it’s no surprise that Broome has a well-rounded supply of accommodation to suit everyone from backpackers to luxury travellers. Self-contained apartments, hotels, luxury resorts with day spas, beach bungalows, hostels, bed and breakfasts and caravan parks are available, but ask us about booking in advance. During peak season, Broome can book up quickly, and even though we’re well connected across the Kimberley, we’d hate you to miss out on your first choice.

As well as boasting its own airport, Broome is well-equipped with everything else you’d expect from a lively coastal township. With an eclectic mix of boutiques, pearl jewellers, indigenous arts and crafts, and local delights at the popular Saturday courthouse markets, Broome offers a great shopping experience for everyone. Catch a movie at Sun Pictures, the world’s oldest outdoor picture gardens, take a stroll through Chinatown, cool off in the air-conditioned comfort of the public library or Civic Centre, or make a splash at the Recreation and Aquatic Centre. There’s ample services and supplies in town so you can fill up on petrol, food and water before you head back onto the open road.
