A multicultural seaside town
The pearling capital of Australia is synonymous with an idyllic tropical paradise setting and luxury indulgences.
A Broome holiday is definitely not lacking in the 'wow' factor. Bordering the wilderness of the Kimberley region, Broome puts on spectacular sunset shows at Cable Beach including the natural light phenomenon known as Staircase to the Moon on certain dates between the months of March and October. Explore the 22km of Cable Beach by camel or simply luxuriate in the clear water. Taking advantage of its bountiful natural attributes, there are myriad eco-retreats, luxury hotels, restaurants and resorts in the area to indulge both body and soul.
As the Australian home of South Sea pearls, Broome attracted an array of divers to its shores to procure the gems giving the town its multicultural mix. You can witness how Broome pearls are cultured at a local pearl farm or view the dazzling gems in a Chinatown showroom. Other ancient organic forms worth a look are the dinosaur footprints located at Gantheaume Point among the amazing ochre-red cliffs.
