Broome Tours

.............................................................................................................................................................................................................................................................................

Broome is a coastal city which has been established in the northern part of Western Australia. Its history has been based on the pearling industry. Divers would collect oysters and recover the pearls which were contained inside. Pearling began in the late 1880’s and was the main industry until the 1960’s brought about the Western Australian mining boom. Since then tourism has developed and thrived, helping the city diversify. The population is approximately 15,000 and triples at the peak of the tourist season.

Broome now has many allures, one of them being Cable Beach. The beaches name originates from the Australia to Java undersea telegraph cable. Cable beach has 23km of stunning white sand. 4WD vehicles are allowed on the beach as well, which has become a popular thing to do when the sun sets on the beautiful beach and when the tide is low. Unique camel rides are available on the beach, and unforgettable experience with a setting sun.

In the northern section of the beach there is a clothing optional section and is one of Australia’s most famous nudist beaches. During the months of November through to March box jellyfish swarm and swimming is not recommended.

Broome and Staircase To The Moon

If the conditions are just right, between March and October each year you can witness an incredible natural phenomenon known as the Staircase to the Moon. This occurs in the north west region of Broome, Town Beach is particularly a good spot to see the site. Receding tides and the rising moon in the sky creates a spectacular sight. On this night a food market opens up to allow for a truly unique dining experience.

If you’re looking to shop, Chinatown is a great place to go. Surrounded by Asian and Colonial architecture there are great souvenir shops, clothing stores, places to grab a bite and some of the world’s top pearl showrooms.

The Broome Bird Observatory is another great place to visit. You can learn about more that 300 species of birds that make this region their home. This includes shorebirds, birds of plains, woodland birds, managrove birds and Raptors.
Other points of interest in the area include Roebuck Bay, the Horizontal Falls, Dampier Peninsula, Cape Leveque and the Rowley Shoals.

Broome is an excellent location to begin or end a Kimberley Tour with Kimberley Outback Tours.
