Must-see attractions around Cable Beach, Broome

Sitting on the western edge of the massive Kimberley region, Broome is a unique holiday destination that holds visitors captivated by fiery red ochre cliffs, the stunning azure waters of the Indian Ocean and an endless expanse of white-sand beaches.


Broome offers a wide variety of natural and fascinating heritage sights to satisfy the whole family. Marvel at the ‘Staircase to the Moon’ – when for three days following the full moon from March to October, reflections of the moon stretch out across shiny mud flats creating the beautiful illusion of a long silver staircase.

Explore a restored wooden pearl lugger and listen to tales of ’saltwater cowboys’ at Pearl Luggers. Or tour the Willie Creek Pearl Farm to learn about pearl farming, to see an oyster being ‘seeded’ and to discover how to choose that special pearl. Catch a movie at Sun Pictures, built in 1916 and thought to be the world’s oldest open-air cinema.

Paddle a sea kayak around Turtle Bay to see unusual rock formations while watching out for sea turtles. Cruise the bay on an authentic 104-year-old wooden pearl lugger or hike the 5km Point to Port Walk – one of the best short coastal walks in Australia.

Along the way you’ll see some of the more remote bays and beaches along the Broome Peninsula, including Reddell Beach, a crescent of white sand dotted with red boulders and fringed by grass-covered sand dunes.

Australia's North West

Broome is also the gateway to the incomparable Kimberley and Pilbara regions, home to Karijini National Park, Purnululu National Park and the Bungle Bungle Ranges and Kunumurra.

Visit ancient gorges, swim in freshwater pools under plunging waterfalls and experience the quintessential Australian landscape of blue skies, red earth, gum trees, wallabies and crocodiles. Take a one-day excursion or longer to Windjana Gorge, Tunnel Creek and Geikie Gorge to better appreciate these amazing natural wonders.
