Top 10 Things to Do in Broome

top 10 things to do in Broome, Australia

 

You may have booked a motorhome hire in Broome, what next?

The small town of Broome has a surprising amount of unique attractions from its immediate surronds up to the its border. You can expereience the sunny, friendly and multicultral pearling town, stunning turquoise water and white beaches. The beach is also popular for sunset camel rides.

You can also visit some of popular places like Japanese and Chinese architecture, art galleries and museums. All add their own distinct flavour to Broome, making the town that’s one of a kind destination. Here’s our list of top things to in Broome, if you’re planning for a trip.

Cable Beach

Cable Beach somehow defines Broome. Of course there is the small town centre (China Town) with its shops, the museum and a few other attractions. But Cable Beach is like a small town on its own, and this is where most of the hotels and resorts are located. […]

Gantheaume Point

Gantheaume Point is located at the southern end of Cable Beach, about 7km from the centre of Broome. Although this location is a little remote, Gantheaume Point is one of Broome’s most famous attractions. One reason for this is that here you can see dinosaur tracks that are more than 120 mio years old!!! Well, let’s rather say: You can see them in theory. They are only visible at very low tide (below 2,16m). Of course I visited at low tide, but I did not find the tracks… There is a replica at the top of the rocks, though. […]

Broome Historical Museum

This museum was no exception. There was so much information on Broome’s history and the pearling industry, on the Japanese and Chinese people who worked here, how hard their lives were and how they shaped today’s society and life in the town. I especially liked that the Aboriginal people were not neglected, there was a lot about their traditional life in this region and how they were exploited by the pearling industry, when they were forced to work and in fact used as slaves. […]

Something Different: Hovercraft

There are a number of different tours you can take including: a 1 hour tour over the tidal flats to see preserved dinosaur prints ($85), a sunset tour which takes 1 3/4 hour and includes hors d’oeuvres and non alcoholic cocktails ($125) or a full scenic/historic tour to see flying boat wreckages and the dinosaur prints 1 1/2 hour ($125). […]

Pearling Lugger

This attraction opened in early 1999 and has developed into one of the towns most talked about tours and has brought back to life the history and heritage of the early pioneering days.
A choice of two experiences are available. The day tour which takes and hour and 15 minutes, or the ultimate evening tour which features the tasting of exotic pearl shell meat dishes, a rare delicacy considering it sells for $700 per kilo in Japan! […]

Willie Creek Pearls

This is the most commercial of the pearl companies in Broome, even though it’s the smallest.
Their tours to their nearby operation are popular and give you a wonderful insight into those precious things that women love.
In addition to a full explanation and demonstration of the humble pearl, you also get a boat ride around the Willie Creek area and will see a resident croc or two in addition to lots of birdlife. […]

Visit The Indigenous Galleries

If you are interested in Indigenous Art or even understanding more about Indigenous Art Broome has plenty of galleries. The galleries are accessible within walking distance from the CBD.

The galleries I visited all had a brief biography of the artist and an explanation of the symbols used in the artwork which provides a greater appreciation of the work. […]

Roebuck Bay

This largely unappealing, though at times photogenic, bay is writ large in Broome’s history.
The English buccaneer William Dampier was the first European to actually visit Broome’s shores in 1688, after sailing north from Shark Bay in the H.M.S. Roebuck, and landing in the region of the Buccaneer Archipelago.
There’s a legend that says he also landed at what is today called Buccaneer Rock in Roebuck Bay and buried a pirate treasure chest. […]

The Streeter’s Jetty Experience

Streeters Jetty off Dampier Terrace is a reconstructed old wooden jetty built out right through the mangroves for the old pearling ships to come close into town. It’s extraordinary to think that boats used to come up in between the dense mangrove forest.
Today people walk the 50 metres of the jetty to nothing; unless you want to jump off the end into the mud.
However, everyone looks over the side and sees fiddler crab heaven. The little red critters are everywhere. I took some time out to watch them and got to see an all male affair to decide the alpha male. […]

Ride A Camel

There are a number of companies that offer a camel ride along Cable Beach. The most expensive of course is the sunset ride at $60. […]
