This is one of the most unique holiday destinations in the country, offering one-of-a-kind experiences that are not to be missed. From nature lovers to history aficionados to adrenaline junkies, Broome has something for everyone.
The Kimberley is a region with unparalleled natural beauty, notable for its gorges and its red earth. Visit the breathtaking Garaanngaddim, where water rushes between two gorges in a horizontal waterfall. If that isn’t enough awe and wonder for one trip, head to the Bungle Bungle Range for World Heritage gorges, chasms, and iconic striped land formations. If you want a more relaxing end to the day, take a sunset camel ride along the beach to wind down.
If you appreciate the finer things in life, take a moment to learn more about pearl farming in Broome, where some of the world’s finest pearls are produced. Visit the numerous shops in Chinatown which sell pearl jewelry, or even take a tour around one of the pearl farms.
For those fascinated by history, take a step back to prehistoric times while following dinosaur tracks along Broome’s coastline. You can also visit the Broome Museum to learn more about the history of the area. Broome also has lots on offer if you want more of a rush. You can take a scenic flight with Air Kimberley to explore the best of Broome’s scenery from above. Or, take a quad bike safari and explore the bush first hand.
