Top 3 Things To Do In Broome
The picturesque, coastal town of Broome is a favourite amongst tourists for a reason. With some of the most beautiful coast in the world, alongside wonderful accommodation and plenty of family-friendly activities, Broome truly is a winner. If you’re lucky enough to get up to Broome, there are dozens of amazing sights to see and things to do. However, we’ve picked out three experiences you simply can’t miss:
1. SUNSET SWIM AT CABLE BEACH
Arguably one of Western Australia’s most famous attractions, Cable Beach is a 22km stretch of stunning white sand met by brilliant turquoise ocean. As well as offering excellent swimming opportunities, Cable Beach is also home to the famous Broome camel rides, where you can ride up and down the beautiful beach on the back of a camel. Popular amongst locals and visitors is a Cable Beach sunset, which can be enjoyed from the sand or from a nearby beach front bar with a cocktail in hand. Vendors frequent the beach during the days, where you can hire out body boards, deck chairs and beach umbrellas. There is often swell big enough to ride a wave into shore on a body board, or else try your hand at bodysurfing. If you’re feeling active, you could even try stand up paddle boarding! Cable Beach is a fantastic family outing, with life guards being in attendance from May – October. Whilst Cable Beach is stunning year-round, the wet season does see the arrival of stingers in the water, meaning that swimming becomes difficult at this time of year. However, you can’t go to Broome without going to Cable Beach and enjoying the stunning sunset over this beautiful part of the Earth.
2. TAKE A DRIVE TO GANTHEAUME POINT
Gantheaume Point offers beautiful views of red rocks meeting bright blue waters, and allows you to truly appreciate just how clear and pristine the Kimberley coast truly is. Located approximately 6km from the town of Broome, not only is Gantheaume Point incredibly scenic, but also holds some awesome history. During times of very low tide, you can spot collections of dinosaur footprints, which are said to be over 135 million years old. You can often spot ospreys and other bird life around this area, with ospreys building their nests around the point. Gantheaume Point is another excellent sunset spot, with beautiful skies meeting the water each evening.
3. CATCH A MOVIE AT THE HISTORIC SUN PICTURES
For a trip to the cinema with a difference, you can’t go past Broome’s famous Sun Pictures. Claiming the title of the world’s oldest outdoor picture garden, the building which houses Sun Pictures was built in 1903, with the cinema itself operating from 1916 onwards. The Sun Pictures has operated through floods and wars, and still brings the Broome community films on the outdoor screen. Operating primarily during the dry season, you can relax in a canvas deck chair whilst enjoying a new release under the star scattered Kimberley sky.
