BroomeAustralia

One of northern Australia’s iconic destinations, this remote pearling town has perfect beaches, exotic marine life, fascinating history and a laid back atmosphere.

Visit Broome, situated on the north-western coast of Western Australia for its beautiful beaches, exotic marine life and interesting history.

Cable Beach is widely considered one of Australia’s best, with 14 miles (22 kilometers) of calm waters and gorgeous scenery. Throw on your swimwear, grab a towel, and hit the beach. The sand is gold and the waters an immaculate turquoise. If it gets too busy, head over to Reddell Beach. It’s just as pretty and you’re unlikely to see more than a couple of people. Those with kids will also want to check out Town Beach. You’ll find a little water park and a great café.

Bird watchers should check out the Bird Observatory on Roebuck Bay to learn about the thousands of migratory birds that visit the area each year. Jump aboard a charter boat to go deep-sea fishing or whale watching.

History buffs will enjoy the Broome Historical Museum where they can learn about the town’s past and its history as a pearling settlement. Walk through the Japanese Cemetery to see the graves of over 900 Japanese divers who died working in the industry. Anyone interested in how things are run today should visit the Willie Creek Pearl Farm.

In the evenings, go for a camel ride along the beach and watch the sun go down or catch a film at the open-air cinema. Broome is a top spot to unwind and soak up some sun. Go for a swim, work on your tan, and forget about the rest of the world.

Broome was founded back in the 1880s as the base of a pearling industry that’s still going strong. Nowadays it’s also a popular holiday destination, with huge numbers of tourists flooding the town each year. Like much of northern Australia, it only has two seasons: wet and dry. The wet season sees torrential downpours with the waters warm but full of stinging jellyfish. Visit May through September for balmy weather, perfect swimming conditions, and cool evenings.
