Things to do

The gem for outdoor activities in Western Australia, there’s so much to discover in Broome. With miles of stunning coast, a multicultural history and luxury resorts, it won’t take long for you to slow right down to ‘Broome time’. 

Many destinations claim to be a cultural melting pot, but Broome (Rubibi), the western gateway to the Kimberley, truly is a vibrant mix. The town dates back to the pearling settlements of the 1800s, with the Aboriginal culture and landscape dating back millennia. Today, Broome is one of the world’s finest producers of pearls, rich in Aboriginal culture and Asian heritage.  

Sunsets in Broome are a sight to behold. Locals and tourists congregate each evening on pristine, 22-kilometre-long Cable Beach to witness the spectacular fiery colours—sometimes on the back of an unhurried camel. When the full moon rises over the mangroves of Roebuck Bay (Yawuru Nagulagun) at low tide, you can see a ‘Staircase to the Moon’, a legacy of some of the most dramatic tidal movements in the world.

For those travelling into the Kimberley during May, watch out for the Boab Metals Ord Valley Muster in Kununurra. If you’re in Broome during August and September, look up the plethora of cultural and culinary events that fall under the Shinju Matsuri. It’s the perfect place to start your adventure in comfort among the expansive natural playground of the north-west, where the wilderness meets the Indian Ocean.
