Se hva du kan gjøre og oppleve i Broome

Broome is situated in North-Western Australia, a two and a half hour flight from Perth. The surrounding region is full of colour, culture and captivating scenery. Fiery red ochre cliffs contrast with the unspoiled turquoise waters of the Indian Ocean, dinosaur footprints tell secrets of ancient days and a multi-cultural population provides arts, performances and inviting cuisine. The pearling industry has been an important part of the region's economy. Many places and shops offer visitors closer insight into this trade and the jewellery craft.

Camel Train on the Beach

Riding in a caravan along the beach at sunset is probably the most iconic experiences you can get in Broome. There are several companies operating the tours many times a day, so you can meet these magnificent animals and get a lift from them whenever it's convenient for you.

Staircase to the Moon

A natural treasure to Broome, this phenomenon occurs for three days during the full moon period, from March to October. Reflections from the moon stretch across the mud flats on very low tides creating the magnificent illusion of a long silver staircase. Tricky to photograph well, but breathtaking in person.
Adresse: Broome, Australia

Gantheaume Point

At Gantheaume Point you can view dinosaur footprints at low tides: they are believed to be more that 130 million years old. Here you can also witness the vivid red sandstone cliffs spilling into the sea. Relax in Anastasia’s Pool – a natural sea bath, modified by a former lighthouse keeper, to make it easy for his wife, Anastasia, to access. Anastasia suffered badly from arthritis and found relief in the warm water of the Indian Ocean which filled the pool at high tide. The man-made structure has been largely destroyed by a storm in 2014, but the romantic story keeps touching the hearts of locals and visitors alike.

Chinatown’s Sun Pictures

Tickets can be purchased when the doors open, about 30 mins before the first session

Health and Safety

When swimming in Broome, pay attention to safety measures against two dangerous kinds of jellyfish, the Irukandji and the Box jellyfish. They can cause severe health problems, and there have been lethal cases, although not in Broome. These jellyfish are usually around when the water is hot, during the hot season and in the nearby months: approximately October to May. It is best not to go swimming during this period of time. However, they can be found - more rarely - even during the rest of the year. The best way to protect oneself is to wear a wetsuit. Always read warnings signs at the beach and ask lifeguards when in doubt. Find more information on the subject at:

Best Time to Visit

Generally, Broome has two seasons: the dry one, from April/May to September, is the best to visit the area; the wet season is very hot and rainy. Most tourists visit between June and August, when, in addition to warm weather and clear skies, it's possible to admire whales migrating off the Northern shore. To avoid most of the crowds, enjoy great swims and beach life, and admire luxurious vegetation right after the wet season, come in June. April and May are also beautiful months, but they're not suitable for swimming due to the presence of potentially dangerous jellyfish (see "Health and Safety"). September can still be enjoyable, but the weather starts to be quite hot.
