Australia’s pearling center
Experience wild Western Australia. Being situated on a north/south peninsula, Broome has water on both sides of the town. On the eastern shore are the waters of Roebuck Bay extending from the main jetty at Port Drive to Sandy Point, west of Thangoo station. Town Beach is part of the shoreline and is popular with visitors on the eastern end of the town.

Broome, Australia’s pearling center, is the western entry point to the Kimberley region, which is home to the world-famous Cable Beach sunsets and the Staircase to the Moon. Only a two-and-a-half-hour flight from Perth will take you to this tropical sanctuary of vivid color and cultural differences, where the vibe is laid-back yet there’s plenty to keep the senses occupied.

Broome is a great place to visit if you’re planning a trip along the west coast. If you’re not sure what it has to offer, have a look at our list of activities you must do in Broome.

Ride a Camel on Cable Beach

Cable Beach is Broome’s iconic beach, with sparkling white sand stretching over 22 kilometres against the Indian Ocean. You can tread the sands of this beach on the back of a camel, riding along as the sun sets, turning the sky into a breathtaking burnt-orange backdrop. The lucky ones sometimes catch glismpses of dolphins and sea creatures frolicking in the waters. After your camel ride experience, sit down at one of the beach side bars and have a cocktail with the stunning sky in sight. 

Ride a Camel on Cable Beach
Cable Beach is home to one of Australia’s most famous nudist beaches. The clothes-optional area is to the north of the beach access road from the car park and continues to the mouth of Willie Creek, 17 km (11 mi) away. Camel rides are offered around sunrise and sunset hours on the northern parts of the beach just past a rocky section. Things To Do When You Visit Broome

Visit a Pearl Farm

Broome is home to world-famous pearls, which has been the central element of the town’s economy for over a century. In the north of Broome is the award-winning Willie Creek Pearl Farm, where you can get an insight into how these beautiful gems are made and processed, and treat yourself to a few pearl jewels fresh from the farm. Alternatively, you can visit Cygnet Bay Pearl Farm for an immersive experience. They have a licensed restaurant offering delectable fare by their infinity pool.

Observe Broome’s Birds

The Broome Bird Observatory is dedicated to the conversation of over 300 bird species in the region and more shorebirds than any other place on Earth. The observatory has several subsections, the most famous being Roebuck Bay where you can get close to native seabirds. Apart from the famous shoebirds, you’ll get to see wildlife such as wallabies and whistling kites. In the mangroves-covered sections, you can also see the birds interact with other animals such as crabs and frogs. 

Witness the Staircase to the Moon

If you’re visiting this winter, make sure you don’t miss the Shinju Matsuri Pearl Festival, which celebrates Broome’s early days of being a world-renowned producer of South Sea Pearls. People come from all over to witness a phenomenon which happens about two days either side of the full moon – when there is a low tide the rising moon is reflected off the rippled tidal mudflats, creating the illusion of a brightly lit staircase up to the moon. This optical illusion occurs from March until November. Make sure you catch this as Broome really comes alive for this natural event with extra markets and activities. One of the best viewing points to witness the moonlight magic is the Town Beach. This location offers views across Roebuck Bay.  

Witness the Staircase to the Moon
The magical sight of staircase to the moon will leave you breathless. When a full moon rises over the exposed tidal flats of Roebuck Bay, it creates a natural phenomenon known as the Staircase to the Moon. Between March and October, the Staircase to the Moon occurs 2 to 3 times per month. Depending on the local weather, tides, sunset, and moonrise, visibility may vary.

Wander in the Wilderness

Untainted natural beauty is the biggest treasure around Broome, and an adventure around the diverse natural sites is definitely a must. Cape Leveque, the northernmost tip of the Dampier Peninsula boasts striking red cliffs and unpopulated beaches. And, Windjana Gorge is home to freshwater crocodiles within its spectacular 100-metre-high limestone gorge walls. The waterside trees are home to fruit bats and corellas.

Wander in the Wilderness
Cape Leveque is at the northernmost tip of the Dampier Peninsula in the Kimberley region of Western Australia. Cape Leveque is 240 kilometres north of Broome, and is remote with few facilities. Nevertheless, the Cape’s sandy beaches are attracting an increasing number of visitors. Things To Do When You Visit Broome
