Art Galleries: Broome is home to an impressive community of artists and has a host of art galleries specialising in local and Aboriginal art.
Broome Golf Club: Broome is home to the only 18 hole, fully grassed golf course in the Kimberley, with spectacular views over Roebuck Bay.
Broome Historical Society Museum: This comprehensive regional museum is a "must see" if you're interested in Broome's rich history. It features a display on pearling and a large collection of photographs and files that piece together the fascinating history of the town.
Cable Beach: Broome's famous Cable Beach is consistently voted in the 'Top 10 Beaches in the World''. With long stretches of white sand, gentle rolling surf, safe swimming, surf patrol (May-October) and warm water temperatures, it's no wonder! The 'Beach Hut' offers all the beach equipment you'll need to hire - umbrellas, beach chairs, surf boards, boogie boards, stand-up paddle boards and beach play equipment.
Camel Rides: On top of a camel is the quintessential way to see the sun go down on Cable Beach. These placid, majestic animals are an iconic sight in Broome and to ride one is a definite Broome "must do"!
Chinatown: Once the bustling centre for Broome's pearling community of mixed cultures, Chinatown is still the vibrant commercial hub of Broome. The original corrugated tin architecture remains and when wandering through the streets, one can imagine the town 100 years ago - rows of pearling sheds, billiard saloons, entertainment houses and Chinese eateries. These buildings are now home to excellent cafes & restaurants, prestigious pearling shops and fashion shops.
Courthouse and Courthouse Markets: Built in distinctive "Broomestyle" architecture, the Broome Courthouse was the original Cable House, linking Broome to Indonesia via an oceanic telegraph cable. Stroll through the gardens which are a mix of tropical and native plants or visit the popular Courthouse Markets held on Saturday and Sunday mornings.
Day Spas: Broome bespeaks "relaxation" and the town has a wonderful selection of day spas located in the town's stunning resorts, equipped with experienced massage/beauty therapists.
Dinosaur Footprints: Dinosaur footprints over 120 million years old can be seen at Gantheaume Point, just south of Cable Beach, on a very low tide. For visitors who miss the low tide or find the walk too arduous, a plaster cast of the tracks has been embedded at the top of the cliff. Dinosaur footprints around Broome have identified the following species; Stegosaur, Sauropod, Wintonopus, Theropod, Megolosauropus and Broomensis.
Eco Beach: The award-winning Eco Beach wilderness retreat is just 1.5 hours south of Broome. Go for a day or extend your trip by staying a few nights in a luxury eco villa or eco tent. With bar & restaurant facilities, a day spa, fishing tours, whale-watching tours, kayaking, paddle-boarding and stunning stretches of isolated beach, you'll never want to leave.
Fishing:Broome and the Kimberley offer keen fishermen (and fisherwomen!) some of Australia's most spectacular fishing grounds. From the shore or aboard a fishing charter, the species variety is diverse and the strike rate high. There are a selection of fishing charter operators or you can try the ultimate remote fishing experience at Eco Beach.
Flying Boat Wrecks: 1km offshore from Town Beach, on a very low tide, visitors can view the Dutch Flying Boat (Catalina) wrecks from a Japanese air raid on Broome during WWII. On 3 March, 1942, 10 Japanese aircraft destroyed a flotilla of 15 large flying boats in Roebuck Bay. The tragedy was that many of the boats were carrying women and children - Dutch civilians and allied military personnel being evacuated from Java to Broome. The death toll is still uncertain, but probably exceeded 100.
Gantheaume Point: This spectacular red cliff point is a wonderful place to watch the sunset, have a picnic and fossick in the rock pools. A 45 minute walk along white sands from Cable Beach or a 6 km drive from town, this is a truly scenic beach and home to dinosaur footprints, active marine life and many moored boats.
Hovercraft: Hovercraft Flights offer a unique way of exploring Roebuck Bay. There are sunrise and sunset tours along with opportunities to view the Flying Boat wrecks and dinosaur footprints.
Malcolm Douglas Wilderness Wildlife Park and Animal Refuge: Established by the late conservationist, "crocodile bushman" and wildlife documentary maker, Malcolm Douglas, this wildlife park is 16 kilometres out of Broome on the Great Northern Highway. Whilst crocodiles are the focus, many other wildlife species can be seen. The park is also home to a successful bilby breeding program and Ark project, which protects animals endangered by the cane toad.
Pearl Luggers: This wonderful facility in the heart of Chinatown enables visitors to experience more than 140 years of Broome's unique maritime heritage. Be whisked back to the pearling days on a guided historical journey that looks at the life of Broome's pearl divers. You can even step aboard two of the last surviving pearl luggers, which have been lovingly restored.
Scenic Tours: A myriad of tour companies operate out of Broome, offering visitors scenic flights, 4WD trips, kayak trips and boat trips - in Broome and throughout the Kimberley - for a day or longer.
Sun Pictures Outdoor Cinema: There really is no better way to watch a movie than under the stars. Broome's historic outdoor cinema opened in 1916 and is believed to be the oldest operating picture garden in the world. It has weathered the ravages of war, cyclones and king tides and houses an excellent display of movie memorabilia.
Staircase to the Moon: This event only occurs once a month between March and October. It is a natural phenomenon caused by the rising of a full moon reflecting off the exposed mudflats of Roebuck Bay on a very low tide, which creates the magical optical illusion of a staircase reaching to the moon. Town Beach or The Mangrove Hotel are the perfect viewing points. Or stay in our Catalina Apartment and watch the Staircase from your private deck.
Town Beach: This idyllic lagoon-style beach is the perfect place for a picnic, swim and stroll through the enchanted mangroves. There is also a cafe, children's playground and water park.
Willie Creek Pearl Farm: 38 km north of Broome, off the Cape Leveque Rd is Willie Creek Pearl Farm. It offers visitors the rare chance to visit a working Pearl Farm. Guided tours and cafe facilities are available.
