Slip into laid-back 'Broome time' and discover one of Australia's most unique towns. A Broome holiday brings camels, surf, and Indian Ocean sunsets, among other natural wonders. The red pindan cliffs, ancient dinosaur prints and glamorous Cable Beach all serve as the gateway to the Kimberley outback. Broome holiday packages help you explore while saving time and money, so start planning your trip today!
When you're booking your Broome holidays, it's a great idea to plan your itinerary from a central base. Stick to the downtown area if you want to arrange camel safaris, check out museums and galleries, and spend lazy days by the sea. Visit the powerful Horizontal Falls, discover the historic pearling industry, or explore Aboriginal culture at Minyirr Park. Create memorable travel stories with a visit to one of the many pubs downtown, and head to Gantheaume Point's rusty, red cliffs to see petrified dinosaur prints right on the tideline. When you visit from March to October during a full moon, we recommend going to Roebuck Bay to watch the natural phenomenon called "The Staircase to the Moon." It's an optical illusion of a staircase rising up to the moon over the mud flats. There are also markets, live music and international food at Town Beach. To travel further into the great outback, consider reserving a hire car in Broome to go on your own adventure into the wild Kimberley region.
When a touch of retail therapy is in order, Broome's Chinatown delivers. You'll find souvenirs, some of the world's finest pearl showrooms and Sunday markets during the dry season, from May to October. In the town centre, check out vintage hippie stores, book shops and local arts and crafts, or stroll around Cable Beach for jewellery, fashion and all your favourite outlets.
You're in luck if you're a fish and chips fan, as there are seafood restaurants and cafes throughout Cable Beach and Chinatown. For more exotic tastes, you'll also find Indian, Thai, and Japanese restaurants. If you're game, there are even spots serving up crocodile salad. In the late afternoon, a Broome holiday is all about sipping on your favourite bevvie, with a view of the sun as it sinks into the Indian Ocean.
When it comes to nightlife, Broome is a small town that packs a mighty punch. Satisfy your dancing feet at a range of cocktail bars, live gig venues and nightclubs. Best of all, at many of the outdoor venues, you can rock your casual beach gear long into the wee hours.
