Broome and Surrounds

Broome is a multicultural town with a unique history going back over 100 years. The lure of the pearling industry attracted many Asian immigrants establishing Broome as one of the world’s premier pearling ports. Over the years, Koepanger, Chinese, Japanese, European and Aboriginal cultures blended to create Broome’s unique character and charm.

The famous Broome pearls are just one of the precious rarities produced in this area - an enduring reminder of a visit to one of the planet’s most exciting locations. Be whisked back in time to an era of danger, fortune and adventure with one of the historical tours or visit a modern, working pearl farm and browse the many world-class pearl jewellery studios and art galleries in Broome.

Endless white beaches, fringed by the turquoise waters of the Indian Ocean and strikingly contrasted against the red sands and cliffs, Cable Beach is world-renowned for its natural and striking beauty. Savour the magnificent colours of the unique coastline from the beach on an iconic Cable Beach camel ride or from the magnificent ocean on a sunset cruise.

The end of the day does not signal the end of the fun in Broome. The Staircase to the Moon is a sight to behold creating a ghostly reflection over Roebuck Bay and the numerous bars and restaurants offer a variety of nightlife.

Broome also has a thriving artistic community.  Browse the local artists' galleries and boutique stores to find that one of a kind holiday souvenir.
