With the picturesque views, stunning sunsets, laid back lifestyle and delicious food, it’s little wonder that Broome is a sought after holiday destination. In fact, with so much to do it can be difficult to know where to start! Well, we’re here to help. We’re sharing some of our top picks for local attractions for you to explore once you’ve settled into your Broome accommodation.
1. Sunset on Cable Beach
You can’t visit Broome without visiting the iconic Cable Beach at sunset. With 22 kilometres of pristine white sand and crystal clear water surrounded by sand dunes and red cliffs, it’s no wonder that visitors spend many hours swimming, fishing, or just relaxing. While there are plenty of ways to enjoy Cable Beach during the day, nothing rivals the spectacular sunsets and it’s truly an incredible experience when you see it for the first time. For the full experience, take a camel ride along the sand while the sun sets.
2. Willie Creek Pearls
Pearl farming has been a part of Broome’s history for over a hundred years and Willie Creek Pearls carry on that tradition. Located 38km out of Broome, you can learn about the process of cultured pearl farming while also taking in the beautiful surrounding scenery. With a café and a playground, there’s plenty to do for the whole family. You can also take part in a helicopter tour to get an incredible view of the area.
3. Malcolm Douglas Crocodile Park
Broome and the Kimberley are synonymous with the iconic crocodile and there are plenty of crocodiles for you to experience at the Malcolm Douglas Crocodile Park. Located only 15 minutes from Broome, you’ll enter through a set of massive fibreglass crocodile jaws and meet a huge range of animals from freshwater and saltwater crocodiles to dingoes and cassowaries. With daily feeding tours on offer, you’ll get the full crocodile experience.
4. Broome Historical Museum
Not only is the Kimberley region famous for its unsurpassed beauty, it also has a fascinating past. If you’d like to know more about the history of Broome, pay a visit to the Broome Historical Museum. The museum building is a feature in itself as it dates back to 1910 and it contains an eclectic mix of historical items and information. There are also volunteers on hand to answer any questions.
5. Scenic flight
If you want a truly unique experience, we recommend that you experience Broome from the air. Many parts of the Kimberley region are inaccessible and a scenic flight gives you the opportunity to take in the sheer size and beauty of the area. You’ll be able to experience a range of iconic sights and take advantage of unmatched views.
