This small town where the bush meets the sea has a strong oriental and pearling mystique. It's still a well- suited coastal habitat for pearling. Broome is also amazingly ethnically mixed for a remote Aussie town, with many locals of Japanese, Filipino, Arabic and Malay origin who all came to Broome at the beginning of last century, after the “Pearl Rush” of the 1880s.
Rent a car in Broome which is an isolated city on the northern coastline of Western Australia. It is a very popular tourist destination and although the population is just over 15,000, this number sometimes triple to over 45,000 when the tourist season is in full swing.
“Slip into Broometime” is a well- worn local saying in Broome. It perfectly captures the chilled atmosphere of this north- western Australian town. Somehow, this remote town manages to mix reclining tropical charm with richness in style, class and history.

Best time to visit Broome
Weather-wise, climate in Broome doesn't have summers and winters. Instead it is classified by a dry season and a wet season. The most popular time to visit Broome is during the dry season, from mid June to to mid August. While the wet season starts from November until April.
The Indian Ocean's stunning turquoise makes Broome's shores a great place for lolling around. Spend your morning lazing about on Cable Beach and then migrate to a hammock for the afternoon. Then, if you can muster enough energy, have a cocktail under the clear night sky that Broome is famous for. Or wander the shops and find that perfect world- class pearl for your sweetheart. It's all good in Broome.
Rent a car and explore the pearling capital of Australia
Hop in your car hire and witness first-hand how Broome pearls are cultured on a cruise to a local pearl farm, then immerse yourself in the romantic tales of the original pearl luggers, or pick up a memento of your trip in the dazzling pearl showrooms of Chinatown.
It is remote, extreme, amazingly spectacular and holds mysterious wonders that date back to the very beginnings of this great country. It is a must see spectacle and one that has to be seen to be truly appreciated. A drive in your cheap car in Broome is one part of the adventure.
The waters are bright turquoise, fiery red ochre cliff, full moon reflected on the waters looking like a stairway to the moon.
Broome is a place with wonderful beaches (and pearls). And if the adventure of a beautiful beach, calming waters and inspiring sunsets is what you are after then Broome is the place for you. Crystal clear waters framed with 22 kilometres of white sand. Now isn't that a picture of perfection. You go beach combing, take a dive, watch the sunset or just sit there and be enthralled by the wondrous beauty of nature. Now that is priceless!
The Japanese Cemetery at Broome (the biggest in Australia) will blast you back to a time when hundreds of Japanese divers drowned or died from diver's paralysis. Quite a few died during the cyclones at the beginning of the last century. Dating back to the early pearling days, the first recorded burial in this cemetery is 1896!
Sun Picture Garden
Address: 27 Carnarvon St, Broome WA 6725
Incredibly, Broome also somehow retains a lot of its frontier charm. Some describe it as a larger, richer and more complex version of Port Douglas, but less commercialised. Catch a movie at the Sun Pictures in Carnarvon Street. Built in 1916, it's thought to be the oldest open air cinema in the world and it still operates!
Broome Bird Observatory
What best way to calm those nerves? Ah...nature and bird watching. This place has been operating since 1988 and they boast the highest diversity of migratory birds. You have the opportunity to go bird watching as they migrate to their breeding grounds and to learn about them. You can even stay here with your family if you like it. They have camping sites (with camp kitchens), rooms and self-contained chalet (with toilet and showers). Not only are you relaxed but you are learning new things as well. You might even decide to take a new hobby. That is bird watching.
Broome Crocodile Park
It's not just pearls and history in Broome. The town also happens to be the western- most limit of saltwater crocodiles. Visit the Broome Crocodile Park and check the big guys out! You can also spot many migratory wading birds around the area, a third of Australia's species visit Broome.
