Broome is a city rich in history, and famous for its thriving pearl industry. Located on the north west coast of Western Australia, it is here where the pristine white sand of Cable Beach meets the Indian Ocean. From exotic wildlife to amazing rock formations and beaches to gorges, there is so much to see and do. While you’re in Broome, take a splash in one of the many beaches. Cable Beach and Town Beach are two of the most famous beaches in Australia. When you arrive, it is clear to see why these beaches are loved as you are enticed by an endless stretch of white sand and turquoise Indian Ocean. Cable Beach also offers camel rides along the beach at sunset.
Broome offers many more spectacular beaches that are just as beautiful but not as well known. Riddell Beach is about a 15 minute drive from the city and is a dramatic scene of ancient red cliffs alongside the deep blue ocean. Roebuck Bay at high tide is also a great location for bird watching. Known for its laid back atmosphere and stunning scenery, Broome has become a popular holiday destination for many travellers and is the perfect destination for touring with your rental car. The Broome Crocodile Park is a short drive away and home to over 1000 reptiles, reaching lengths up to 5 metres and range from small hatchlings up to 80- year-old crocs. When travelling over to the park, take your time and make sure you don’t miss the feeding of Crocodiles which takes place in the afternoon.
For the perfect way to end a day of exploring Broome and its neighbouring locations, visit Sun Cinema – the oldest outdoor theatre in the world. Despite war time bombings, tidal floods, cyclones and even a period of racial segregation, this tin shed still remains and the movies still play. During the day, the theatre is open so you can enjoy a trip down memory lane with a collection of memorabilia, movie posters and old movie reels on display. At night the cinema still plays the latest blockbusters under the stars.
