Famous for its stunning white sand beach and laidback vibe, the pearling town of Broome is an oasis of colour and culture and a favourite mecca for artists, writers and musicians. Broome’s multicultural mix has been shaped by its pearling history, founded by the Japanese, Filipino and Malay pearl divers who arrived at Broome to seek their fortune. Today, Broome’s South Sea pearls are among the most sought after in the world.
Beautiful Cable Beach, deservedly famous, is one of the town’s most popular attractions and makes an ideal place to watch the sunset on a balmy, tropical night. Other natural attractions include the famous Staircase to the Moon, and Gantheaume Point, with its ancient dinosaur footprints. Broome has a great range of accommodation, from eco resorts to plush hotels, as well as hostels for the budget traveller. Broome is a gateway to the exotic Kimberley region and a departure point for tours to Geike, Windjana and Manning Gorges, and Tunnel Creek. The town is a two and a half hour flight from Perth, in Western Australia's far north.
