On a peninsula, not more than 15km long lays the tropical seaside town of Broome. With a population of about 17 000 out of season, the population explodes to about 55 000 mid season.
Often referred to as the southern gateway to the Kimberley, this is where the desert meets the sea and travellers from all around the world come to experience a range of natural wonders, alluring landscapes and adventure activities.
If you time your holiday right, be inspired by the natural night time beauty known as the Staircase to the Moon. View this from the Mangrove Hotel or Town Beach where the reflection of the moon on the mudflats of Roebuck Bay at low tide creates an optical illusion of a tangible staircase to take travellers away from earth and into outer space.
Local night markets at Town Beach often accompany the Staircase where holidaymakers can sample local fare. You can buy crafts and relax all the while listening to the talent of local entertainers. Those looking for an adventure of a different kind can take a hovercraft (one of only 3 commercially operating anywhere in the world) over the tidal flats of Roebuck Bay, or jump aboard a helicopter for a joy flight over the colourful Broome coastline.
Broome is home to a plethora of natural and man-made wonders. Locals and tourists alike can visit Chinatown, embark on a Willie Creek Pearl Farm tour, go four-wheel driving to the Dampier Peninsula thanks to Broome and Beyond hire, take a fishing trip with Absolute Ocean Charters, take a scenic flight to the world famous Horizontal Falls with Fly Broome or just spend a morning kayaking with Turtle Bay Kayaking.Select a Broome Taxi Driver and Book My Taxi Now
