Welcome to Broome Once the pearling capital of the world, Broome is a unique town with a romantic and often flamboyant history. Surrounded by the sparkling turquoise waters of Cable Beach, with craggy red cliffs and endless white sands, Broome’s stunning natural beauty and relaxed, tropical feel will capture your imagination. Established as a pearling port in the 1880’s, Broome today boasts a multicultural population made up of the many nationalities who flocked to the shores of Roebuck Bay in the hope of making their fortune from the pearling industry. Remnants of the town’s exotic past are everywhere. The unusual ‘Asian Colonial’ architecture that developed is evident throughout Broome, with Chinatown being home to the art galleries and pearl emporiums for which Broome is famous.

GlorIoUS SUNNY DAYS Broome enjoys dry, sunny days during the peak months of May to October; a perfect escape from the winter chills of southern Australian states, with an average daily temperature of 31°c. Evenings can be cooler at this time of year with an average minimum of 16°c. The tropical summer is typified by humid days and balmy nights. Travel to the region at this time of year may yield some rain and access to Kimberley touring options are limited due to reduced road access. However, Broome takes on a dramatic personality during the tropical summer. The scent of frangipani is everywhere, mangoes are in season and the barramundi are on the bite.
