Witness the sunset of a lifetime in Broome, the gateway to Australia’s North West and the proud pearling capital of the country.
Often referred to as the pearl of North West Australia, Broome is the western gateway to the Kimberley wilderness and the Purnululu National Park, commonly known as The Bungle Bungles. Just a two and a half hour flight from Perth transports you to a tropical oasis of white sand and crystal-clear blue water. Broome is also home to the world-famous Cable Beach, making it one of the state’s most popular holiday destinations.
The renowned beaches of Broome aren’t just beautiful; they also boast a rich history. Cable Beach is named for an undersea telegraph cable that was laid in the late 1800s, connecting Broome all the way to Singapore. The rich pearling history of the area is utterly fascinating, as are the ancient 130 million-year-old dinosaur footprints that can be found at Gantheaume Point.
Whether you’re an adrenaline junkie, a history buff, or anything in between, there’s always something in Broome to spark your imagination and ignite your senses.

Attractions and activities in Broome
If you’re looking for things to do in Broome, Mantra Frangipani is a great starting point. The majority of attractions and activities are located just a short stroll from its centralised location. Some of the more popular sightseeing options include:
- Sundowner Camel Tour – Experience something a little more special than your usual beachside stroll. Sit atop a camel as you explore Cable Beach with your friends and family, and don’t miss the stunning views across to Gantheaume Point.
- Pearl Lugger Tour & Sunset Cruise – Enjoy the beauty and serenity of Broome’s pristine coastline as you cruise on a century-old authentic wooden pearling lugger. Savour the fresh food and indulge in a glass of wine as the sun sets, and marvel at the fact that you’re walking the same decks as divers who sought their fortunes over a hundred years ago.
- Staircase to the Moon – This breathtaking natural phenomenon, which occurs between March and October when the conditions are just right, is caused by the rising of the full moon reflecting off the exposed mudflats at extremely low tide. This creates a beautiful optical illusion of stairs reaching up towards the moon. This stunning spectacle is often complemented by the local markets at Town Beach, where you can sample local produce, purchase crafts and enjoy the local entertainment.
- Whale watching – Join Broome Whale Watching on an afternoon cruise and learn all about humpback whale migratory patterns and behaviours. Also be sure to keep an eye out for dolphins, turtles and even sharks! It’s a perfect day out for all ages.
- Hovercrafts & dinosaur footprints – While these two things are not normally associated with each other, this is probably one of the most intriguing and captivating experiences Broome has to offer. Enjoy the sights of the Broome coastline and the wonders of Roebuck Bay as you hover over very low water, tidal flats, and sand bars to places inaccessible by any other means. Learn about the history of Broome and check out the famous dinosaur footprints left behind a hundred million years ago.
- Cultural Chinatown – Once a bustling hub of pearl sheds, billiard saloons and opium dens, Chinatown in Broome is now home to fine pearl showrooms and an eclectic mix of sidewalk cafes and restaurants serving exotic East-meets-West cuisine.
