Broome, Western Australia

The Western Australian holiday destination of Broome was initially founded as a pearling port over a century ago and is ideally positioned between a vast red desert wilderness and the azure blue sea. Broome is famous for its 22 kilometre long Cable Beach which features pure white sands surrounded by sparkling blue waters and one of the most popular things to do on Cable Beach apart from swimming is to take a camel ride along the beach at sunset. Broome is also known as the gateway to the famous Kimberley region which has numerous wilderness areas and amazing natural landscapes for you to explore, including the Bungle Bungles, the Buccaneer Archipelago, the Windjana Gorge National Park, Horizontal Falls and many other magnificent gorges, waterfalls and ancient rock formations.

Even today the pearling industry is still a vital part of Broome and you can go shopping for some of the world's finest pearls at the retail showrooms. Within the township of Broome you will discover a variety of alfresco cafes, sophisticated dining, weekend markets, art galleries, an 18 hole golf course and plenty of shops in the Chinatown precinct of town. Some of the other attractions and activities that are available around Brooms include Malcolm Douglas' famous Crocodile Park, game fishing, indigenous tours, the Sun Picture Theatre, kayaking, sunset cruises, scenic flights and an array of water based activities. You will even find authentic dinosaur footprints preserved in rock at the nearby Gantheaume Point at Broome.

One of the major attractions that keeps visitors coming back to Broome time and again in the natural phenomenon known as the 'Staircase to the Moon'. This event occurs for three nights each month from March to October and is when the moon rises over the bay after the tide has retreated leaving shallow puddles of water reflecting the image of the rising moon. Combine this with the town's laid back holiday atmosphere, glorious sunsets and award winning tours and you have the perfect holiday destination for your next vacation.
