Here are our top local things to do at the best beach hostels in Broome.


Broome is the last real surf destination on the coast of Western Australia, and as far as surf spots go, Cable Beach really gives you a scenic swell.

If you are a beginner, there are plenty of cheap surf lessons around. And if you already know what you are doing but don’t have your board, there are also plenty of places to rent a board. The best time to surf in Broome is during the summer months. You get the best swells in February, according to frequent surfers in Broome. Come February, you can enjoy consistent waves and great weather to enjoy riding those clean swells. And, once you work up an appetite after rigorous surfing, head over to the many restaurants with sea views. The Sunset Bar and Grill is always reliable, and offers plenty of restaurants from which you can choose your favourite. 

Camel Rides

Nobody goes to Broome without hearing about the famous Camel rides on Cable Beach. What makes this activity so amazing is because it often takes place on a sunset and as far as sun sets go, it rarely gets better than the many hued sunsets of Cable Beach. Watching a sunset is a great way to wrap up a day’s adventure in Broome. You could even combine all your Broome fun into one perfect day. A spot of surfing, wining and dining, a camel ride near the salty waves, and watching the sunset with a drink in your hand. Not bad for a day’s travel ey!

Staircase to the Moon

Staircase to the Moon is a natural phenomenon which takes place when a full moon rises over the exposed flat tides of Roebuck Bay. It is a mesmerizing optical illusion that makes your eyes and brain believe there is a stairway reaching up to the moon. The Staircase to the Moon happens 2 – 3 days a month between March and October.
This event is so incredible because everyone around Broome gathers to see it, drink and have fun. The atmosphere tends to get ecstatic with anticipation over this beautiful spectacle, and there is always a Market with live music, homemade products and amazing street food.
