Camel Ride On Cable Beach
Western Australia is blessed with some of the country’s most beautiful beaches, and the ones in Broome are a prime example. Cable Beach is the region’s most iconic beach, with sparkling white sand stretching over 22 kilometres against the Indian Ocean. You can tread the sands of this beach on the back of a camel, riding along as the sun sets, turning the sky into a breathtaking burnt-orange backdrop. After your camel experience, sit down at one of the beachside bars and have a cocktail with the stunning sky in sight.
The Pearl Of Western Australia
The heart of Broome lies in the town’s world-famous pearls, which has been the central element of the town’s economy for over a century. In the north of Broome is the award-winning Willie Creek Pearl Farm, where you can get an insight into how these beautiful gems are made and processed. Book a helicopter ride around the area and spoil yourself with the wonderful natural scenes. The best way to conclude your visit is to go to the farm’s showroom and treat yourself to a few pearl jewels fresh from the farm.
Birds Of Paradise
The Kimberley region is a wildlife paradise, and Broome has the self-titled Bird Observatory, dedicated to the conversation of over 300 bird species in the region and more shorebirds than any other place on Earth. The observatory has several subsections, the most famous being Roebuck Bay where you can get real close to native seabirds flying around the area. In the mangroves-covered sections of the area, you can also see the birds interact with other animals such as crabs and frogs. Join a guided tour for more information about the wildlife and closer interaction with the birds.
Wandering in the Wilderness
Untainted natural beauty is the biggest treasure in the Kimberley region, and when you’re in Broome an adventure around the diverse natural sites are definitely a must. On the far edge of the Dampier Peninsula is Cape Leveque, with striking red cliffs and unpolluted beaches that more than make up for its remote location. For somewhere closer to the town, you can also visit Windjana Gorge, famous for its spectacular 100-metre-high rock walls. To make your adventure even wilder, watch out for freshwater crocodiles in the water or resting on the rocks.
