18 Best Broome Attractions Every Tourist Must See

Originally a pearling town, today Broome is the gateway to the Kimberley region of Australia. Broome is a lovely seaside town offering plenty to visitors.

The top Broome Attraction is the beautiful Cable Beach. Named for the underwater cable that first connected NW Australia to Indonesia in 1889. Cable Beach is a 22 km (14 miles) long strip of glorious white sand. Try a sunset camel ride along the beach for unforgettable memories.

For kids, they will love the animals in Broome, but don’t let your babies too close to them at the Malcolm Douglas Crocodile Park! Here you can see some of the largest Crocs in Australia at their daily feeding. Australia has a huge array of birds, with lots of brightly coloured parrots and you can meet a selection of them at the 12 Mile Bird Park. Finish the day with a movie at Sun Pictures Cinema, a novel outdoor movie theatre that will fascinate the kids!

Day Tours

A visit to the Horizontal Falls is a must. One of the greatest wonders of the world, the ‘waterfall’ effect is caused by massive tidal movements through a very restricted gap in the rocks. Take a trip in the Kimberley region and the Bungle Bungles, fascinating dome shaped landforms of black and orange found in the Purnululu National Park. Nearby, the Dampier Peninsula is worth a visit. You may know that Dampier is the home town of ‘Red Dog’ from the famous Australian movie.

Local Tip

Get down close to the wet sand after the tide goes out to watch the tiny crabs making lace patterns as they clean out invasive grains of sand from their homes. Nature in miniature, a serendipitous moment.

Local Knowledge

Close to Broome is the town of Derby which has the biggest tides in Australia. They measure over 11m difference between high and low tides, giving the seashore a totally different appearance at different times of the day.
