Broome has long been considered a colourful city. It’s culturally colourful—its pearl diving history brought a variety of people into its cultural landscape, including Aborigines, Brits, Chinese, Japanese and Indonesians. In fact, today’s city centre is Chinatown. But from the teal waters that line Roebuck Bay to the green mangroves to the red pindan soil, Broome is full of visual colours as well.
Despite the bustle of travellers, resorts and pearl cultivation, it seems the whole city pauses to bask in the glow of a sunset that turns everything it touches into gold. So choose your vehicle one of Wotif’s Broome car hire options in any colour—you’ll fit right in.
Wotif’s Broome holidays are the perfect excuse to get out and lounge in the sunshine at Cable Beach. If you’re the active, golf club-swinging type, enjoy the sunshine from the green in Minyirr instead.
Perhaps the races are more your speed? Point your Broome car rental toward Gantheaume Point and the Broome Turf Club, then watch your pony cross the finish line as the sun drops into the ocean. After dark, throw back a few beers (or some tea) in Chinatown before heading back to your accommodation in Broome to hit the hay.
Revving to get out of the city? The small town of Derby, 200km to the northeast, might be just the thing. Check out the Boab Prison Tree, a hollow hardwood rumoured to have held prisoners in the 1890s—and either way, it’s very cool-looking. You can also see the largest tide change in Australia and crash your way through the Horizontal Falls.
Still too civilised? You’re in luck. Broome is a gateway to the rugged Kimberley, Australia’s last wilderness. Just take one of our Broome car rentals in any direction and enjoy more nature than you can shake a walking stick at.
All this and more is at your fingertips when you search the great deals on Wotif. Book today, before these deals are swept away!
