Broome’s weather is divided into two distinct seasons- the wet season (monsoons) and the dry season (summer). The dry season sees a rise in tourists while the wet season is what we otherwise call an off-season but still has quite a lot of visitors. Basically, Broome can be visited anytime of the year but plan your trip according the weather pattern best suited for you. The best time would be to visit just after the wet season when the cool weather is just setting in and everything is still green and lush.
Dry Season (April-October): The dry season is peak tourist season and the town is just brimming with people. Since Broome doesn’t observe a winter, many people come to the north to escape the cold of the south. The weather is pleasant and sunny with temperatures during the day not exceeding 30 degrees (Celsius) and dropping to a cool 20-23 degrees (Celsius).
Wet Season (November-March): The wet season brings with it hot days going as high as 35 degrees (Celsius) and torrential downpour, not to mention the isolated thunderstorms that take place out of the blue. The months between January and March especially see a lot of rain and possible flooding and cyclone warnings. In spite of these ‘drawbacks’, the wet season too sees its fair share of visitors.
