Book Broome Tours
Book Kimberley Tours
With its laid back vibe (they don’t have any traffic lights) and with a tiny population (just 15,000), you’d be excused for thinking Broome is nothing but a sleepy seaside town. Far from it – from endless stretches of idyllic white sand beaches to a bustling Chinatown seeped in history, you’ll never be lost for things to do. Take a Perth to Broome Tour with Kimberley Wild and check out some of our top picks for things to do whilst in the capital of Kimberley.
Watch the Sunset on Cable Beach
Cable beach, a largely untouched 22km stretch of white sand beach is famous for one prime thing – its Indian ocean-facing sunsets. The beautiful combination of the pristine turquoise waters and rich red soil form a stunning backdrop for a sunset. And if simply sitting down to watch the horizon isn’t enough for those adventure lovers, you can even enjoy the view from the back of a camel!
Learn About Pearls at Willie Creek
A trip to Broome wouldn’t be complete without a trip to a Willie Creek Pearl Farm. Try on one of the beautiful pieces of jewelry and swoon – maybe if you’re persuasive enough someone will buy you a gift! Afterward, take a Pearl Luggers tour to learn all about the fascinating history of the much-revered gems.
Visit Broome Bird Observatory
This ones for the wildlife lovers! Did you know that the Kimberley region boasts over 300 bird species in total, from colourful cockatoos to majestic falcons? Head to the Bird Observatory to learn facts like this and more! Divided up into subsections, including the shoreline area of Roebuck Bay and vast expanses of wetlands and mangroves, the observatory really gives you an insight into the variety of birds.
See the Sights From Gantheaume Point
For truly spectacular sights, head to this red rock cliff face which looks over the brilliant azure waters of the Indian Ocean. Head down the well-worn tracks to view the replica dinosaur footprints – the real ones can be spotted at low tide at the bottom of the cliff, but be warned, the huge tidal movements could make this search for the prehistoric dangerous.
Expand Your Mind at The Broome Historical Museum
Committed to showcasing the history of Broome for over 40 years, The Broome Historical Museum is a vast collection of artifacts spread over three buildings. Learn about everything from the role of Broome in WWII to the tools and techniques of an early 20th century sailmaker. Purchase a book or postcard or take a piece of Broome history with you.
