All about Broome

When to visit

You have two choices of seasons in Broome: wet or dry. The dry season runs from May through October and is the best time to enjoy the beach. (It is also the busiest season.) Between March and early November, try to time your visit to see the Staircase to the Moon, which occurs 2 to 3 times per month when the moon rises over the local tidal flats. Visit in late August and early September for the Shinju Matsuri Festival, celebrating the town’s pearl producing history.

Getting around

It can be time consuming (and hot) to get around Broome on foot because many of the area’s top attractions are spread out around town. One good option is to rent a bicycle, as the town has extensive bike paths, but be careful not to overdo; it gets hot in the summer. The Town Bus runs regular services between Cable Beach, downtown, and Chinatown, and guided tours often include hotel pickup.

Traveler tips

The Broome Courthouse hosts markets in its tropical gardens every Saturday morning year-round (as well as on Sunday mornings from April to October). Visit to browse through locally made jewelry, clothes, handicrafts, art, and produce. Even if you’re not planning on shopping, it’s worth a visit to stretch out on the lush lawn, under shady trees, and enjoy the live music, food trucks, and family entertainment.


Frequently Asked Questions

Why is Broome famous?

Broome was known as the pearling capital of the world in the 19th century, and it’s still the heart of Australia’s pearling industry. The Western Australia city is also famous for its landscapes, including the Staircase to the Moon at Roebuck Bay and Horizontal Falls.

How long should I spend in Broome?

Plan three days to take in Broome’s highlights and explore the Kimberley region. Visit a pearl farm, marvel at the red sands of Roebuck Bay, and see the dinosaur footprints at Gantheaume Point. Other unmissable activities include a camel ride along Cable Beach and a seaplane flight over Horizontal Falls.

What recreational activities is Broome known for?

A camel ride along Cable Beach and a pearl farm tour are the quintessential activities for travelers to Broome. After that, you can head to the beach to kayak and stand-up paddleboard, take a dolphin- or whale-watching cruise, or snorkel and scuba dive at Rowley Shoals Marine Park.

Does Broome have crocodiles?

Salt and freshwater crocodiles can be found in Broome and the Kimberley region, but they are most likely to be seen in rivers and creeks in the wet season (Nov.–Apr.). Crocodiles are rarely spotted along the coast, and it’s generally safe to swim at patrolled beaches during the dry season.

Do you need a 4WD to get to Coconut Wells?

Yes, access to the lagoons and rock pools of Coconut Well is via a sandy road that’s a 4WD-only route. They’re about a 20-minute drive north of Broome. Alternatively, it’s possible to drive along the beach from Cable Beach at low tide, but this route also requires a 4WD.

Is Broome worth visiting?

Yes, Broome is a worthy addition to any Western Australia itinerary—especially as it’s the largest city in the far north and gateway to the Kimberley region. Visitors come to Broome to admire its unique natural landscapes, tour the pearl farms, and take a sunset camel ride along Cable Beach.
