Map of Broome
Did you know?
Cable BeachLong renowned as one of the world’s best beaches CableBeach takes its name from the Submarine Telegraph Cable that was laid in 1889, connecting Broome to Java, and becoming the main form of communication between Broome and the rest of the world.
Where the sky meets the land, the desert meets the sea, where white sands, red rocks and cobalt blue waters come together; on a peninsula not more than 15km long, here rests the town of Broome. Often referred to as the southern gateway to the Kimberley, this tropical seaside town simply oozes charm and character. Yet it’s not just the spectacular setting, warm winter days and balmy summer nights that make Broome a ‘one of a kind’ holiday destination.
Today, it is a popular location to relax in the sun, go for a swim, sail on a pearl lugger, go fishing or just watch the tide go out and enjoy a magnificent sunset. Wander through Chinatown and enjoy the contradiction of Broome, where historical buildings stand side by side with the architecture of the modern world. Among the modern pearl and art galleries, the infrastructures of the past subtly remind you of a day gone by, where pearling masters were celebrated and pearl luggers lined the shores of RoebuckBay.
