The pearling history and indigenous culture of Broome are present in its art, food and people, making this outpost a favourite with many travellers. This is also a town managing regional growth from mining and gas resources, so you’ll find modern amenities and creature comforts.
Cable Beach is a stunning setting, side trips to the Dampier Peninsula are very worthwhile and spectacular coastal cruises depart from here.
View the world’s largest population of Humpback Whales or the renowned shore birds in their migratory cycles.
Broome can be your start or finish to the Savannah Way, or a base to explore from if you fly in and out. Either way allow a few days here.
