The Pearl of the Kimberley-Broome

Camels

This exotic town was once the pearling capital of the world and drew its population from a range of nations whose people came on the promise of pearls and in the hope of making a fortune. Its colourful history has resulted in a multi-cultural feel.

Broome is famous for Cable Beach - all 22 kilometres of it. This is undoubtedly one of the world's most stunning beaches - a pure white band bordering a brilliant blue ocean. Just the place for lazy days and sunset camel rides.

Tour a pearl farm, or relax poolside at one of many easygoing resorts. At Gantheaume Point, near Broome, dinosaur footprints are also preserved in rock. Don’t forget to visit Sun Pictures to watch a movie under the stars while relaxing in a deck chair.

Visit Broome at full moon and be rewarded with this uncommon optical illusion: moonlight reflecting in puddles on the mud flats at low tide look like a stairway to heaven. It happens between March and October for two to three nights a month. Town Beach is among the best viewing places. A market coincides with the event.
