Broome is a coastal resort town nestled at the foot of the Dampier Peninsula, where the desert meets the Indian Ocean in resplendent beauty. Whether you’re cruising up the gorgeous coastline, shopping for Broome’s revered pearls, or riding a camel on the beach at sunset, you’ll find plenty of charm in and around this remote tropical oasis.
The Bay Club is a great for a tasty breakfast, with beautiful views overlooking Roebuck Bay. After your meal, head to the Broome Visitors Centre, or take a scenic stroll to the Broome Historical Museum to explore Broome’s fascinating past as the world’s largest pearling centre. You may be inspired to visit a pearl farm, or enjoy some boutique pearl shopping at Dampier Terrace.
Cable Beach’s white sands, ochre cliffs and crystal-clear waters are only a few minutes’ drive away, and are perfect for relaxing in the sun. You can also ride a beachside camel at sunrise or sunset here, an iconic Broome experience.
The adjacent Minyirr Park offers an introduction to the culture of the local Yawuru people, and three easy walking trails over magnificent wilderness.
At the southern end of Cable Beach, Gantheaume Point is a treat for budding palaeontologists. At least nine species of dinosaur footprints have been identified, dating back 130 million years.
The drive through the Dampier Peninsula to Cape Leveque is an extraordinary adventure. Following Cape Leveque Road northwards, you’ll find bushwalking tours and bush tucker at the indigenous communities, as well as secluded beaches, breathtaking landscapes and the famous Mother of Pearl Shell altar at Beagle Bay Church.
The Cape is at the northern tip of the Peninsula, where you’ll find the award-winning Kooljaman luxury wilderness camp. The indigenous owner-operators of the camp love sharing their passion for the Cape with visitors.
Broome’s “dry season” (tourist season) is roughly April to October, and the mild climate in the colder months makes it a perfect winter getaway. April marks the end of the monsoonal “wet season”, and the lush native greenery of the outback makes it an idea time to visit.
Broome and the Kimberley are an unmissable road trip, rich in beauty, culture and history, and it is well worth hiring a car and taking some time to experience everything that the area has to offer.
