Are you looking for what to do in Broome?
PLACES TO SEE
- Cable Beach: Western Australia’s most famous landmark, Cable Beach is the perfect place to unwind for the day. Not so crowded during the day, the beach is teeming with people with packed lunches and four wheel drives to watch the beautiful sun set over the bay. White sands and turquoise water makes for a lovely walk along the shore or a dip in the ocean. Be careful of stingers though!
- Japanese Cemetery: Home to the finest pearls in the world, Broome’s journey to establish itself as the pearl capital to be reckoned with is an intriguing one. During a time when nations were at war, the Japanese and Australians came together, to dive into the deep and seek out the pearls of the sea. This led to many pearl divers losing their lives out at sea and during the cyclones in 1908 and 1935. The Japanese Cemetery is a tribute to all those who were claimed by the sea.
- Broome Bird Observatory: Even if you don’t like bird watching, you don’t want to miss out on the Broome Bird Observatory. The shores of Roebuck Bay live up to their reputation and provide you with a magnificent up-close view of a plethora of migratory birds. There’s no other place in Western Australia where you’ll see more than 300 species of birds in just one outing.
- Sun Pictures Cinema: For those of you don’t know, the Sun Pictures holds a pleasant little surprise for you! Located in China Town, Sun Pictures is the only functional open air theatre in the old, and yes, they do play the major feature films. So if time permits, catch a flick here or just sign up for a history tour and be amazed.
- Gantheaume Point: We’ve all read about dinosaurs in school and how they are now extinct and not in sight anymore. Well, what if you were told a part of the dinosaurs do exist? Gantheaume Point is a part of red sandstone cliffs with a view to die for. During low tide, there’s a much closer view that will make your jaw drop. Fossilized footprints of dinosaurs are embedded in these cliffs of molten cliffs. Remember to go during low tide and if for some reason you missed it, on top of the cliffs are replicas of these footprints in plaster casts.
