Our guide to spending 24 Hours In Broome
Arrived the night before? Start your day bright and early at the Kool Spot Cafe on Carnarvon Street. Here, you can enjoy your all-important morning coffee as well as exotic breakfasts such as the heuvos rancheros (fried eggs on tortilla with salsa) or fruity toasted mango and coconut bread.
Once you’ve fuelled up it’s time to explore the town. If you happen to be in Broome on a Saturday or Sunday then you may be able to take in the local charm of the Broome Courthouse Markets. The markets are open on Saturdays all year around, and on Sundays from April to October. You can eat and drink, and browse for local crafts.
Alternatively you could learn about the pearl farming industry that Broome was built on with a Pearl Luggers Tour. Broome is essentially a pearling town, and you should not leave it without learning about this legendary trade. The guided tours offer insights into the allure and danger of the pearling industry.
For lunch we suggest heading to the Green Mango Cafe for their pulled pork burger. It’s reasonably priced here meaning you don’t have to burst your entire day’s budget for a decent meal. Their eggs Benedict and Buddha Bowl are popular too.
When having a day’s downtime anywhere it’s important not to go too overboard on the activities, after all you’ll soon be hitting the road again in search of new adventures. So during the afternoon why not head to see the 3.5 metre high, crystal Buddha opposite the Cable Beach Club Resort. The Blue Body Buddha Sanctuary is the perfect location for those looking to find some peace. They remain open 7 days a week. You can even join a yoga class if you are interested. Their morning yoga classes are challenging while the evening sessions focus more on inner growth and serenity.
As we edge towards sunset, you’re ever closes to seeing what you came for – the epic Broome sunset. Of course the most post card way to see the sunset is with a camel ride along Cable Beach, so make sure you leave enough time to make it happen as this truly is one of the most spectacular beaches. Come nightfall you could either head to Oasis Bar which is an outdoor nightclub at the Roebuck Bay Hotel – known as “the Roey” to locals, or if you’re really up for a relaxing one, then catch a flick at Sun Pictures – Broome’s Outdoor Cinema. You can book tickets online or wait in line at the entrance. They have a kiosk that sells alcohol. But, remember to take mosquito repellent to repel those pesky insects. It is the perfect way to spend an evening recharging your batteries before setting off bright and early the next day.
