Tours and what to do in Broome
Famous Cable Beach stretching for miles around
One of the most favorite pastimes in Broome is to head for the
Sunbathe on Cable Beach or go for endless walks, and then in the evening watch the magical sunsets over the ocean with a cool drink, or go for a sunset camel ride!
The northern end of the beach is accessable by fourwheeldrive, and has a small nudist section.
At the end of Cable Beach there is a lovely rock pool called Anastasia's Pool, some spectacular looking cliffs at Gantheaume Point, and also some dinosaur footprints set in the cliffs.
On a full moonnight go to Town Beach where at a low tide you will see Broome's 'Staircase to the Moon' Roebuck Bay is another popular beach, a very important rest stop for migratory wading birds.
Eighty Mile Beach is a beautiful long white sand beach located about 50 km south of Sandfire Roadhouse.
It is well worth a visit and you can stay here too at the caravan park. It is a nice clean beach now but in 1887 it looked a bit different, a cyclone had struck the Broome pearling fleet and the beach was littered with 140 dead pearl divers and debris of the battered ships.
The Broome Bird Observator is located near Roebuck Bay, there are various observatory trails around the area, you could spot any of 49 species of waders and 22 species of birds of prey on your walk here.
A great way to learn about Broome's fascinating history is the Broome Heritage Trail. Don't forget to visit Chinatown, which is the old part of Broome, located around Carnarvon Street.
If you're interested in the colorful history of this town visit the
Broome Historical Museum in Saville Street. It has an interesting collection
of memorabilia from the town's early pearling days.
They also have an interesting publication called The Broome Heritage Trail brochure, a guide to some of Broome's more unusual historical attractions.
The Crocodile Park and Pearl Coast Zoo are located on Cable Beach Road
near the Cable Beach Resort.
The crocodile park is both a research station and a place where the public can learn about crocodiles. The crocs in this park are mainly 'problem' animals which have been captured in other places in northern W.A.
The Pearl Coast Zoo is a well designed environment with emphasis on animals of the local Kimberley region.

The Japanese Cemetery at Broome was established in the very early pearling days around 1896. Hundreds of young Japanese divers died from the bends, drowning, or shark attack. A monument in the cemetery stands to remember those who drowned at sea in a major cyclone in 1908 . There were more cyclones in 1887 and 1935 in which at least 140 men died in each of them. The cemetery counts over 700 graves adorned with interesting headstones of coloured beach rock. You will find the cemetery on Port Drive on the way to Cable Beach.
This is a monthly event where during low tide the rising moon's light gets reflected off the wet mud and pools of water off Broome's Town Beach, giving the appearance of a staircase.
