Broome is Beautiful!
Life is just as amazing and beautiful as you can imagine in Broome. It’s like another country in Australia. It’s remote, unique and scenic. In fact, the city is 212 km away from its closest neighbour Derby, and you are coming from Perth then it’s around 2200 km far.
The moment you arrive in Broome, it seems like an expansive desert island surrounded by thousands of acres of grubby outback and long stretches of white sand of turquoise sea. Still, if these things are not ample to make you convince that Broome is amazing, it has camel trains, the pearling industry, and the country’s remotest microbrewery.
While in Broome, the biggest difficult you will face is to choose from beach, beer, Barbie or a camel ride. But how about having all?
Folks, let’s not add further ado and here are the top 7 things you must experience during your holiday trip to Broome.
Camel Ride at a Beach
Long queues of camels with pretty saddle blankets cover the long stretch of white sandy beach from sun rise to sunset hours. If you want to book a camel ride on the beach, schedule it on the sun set time when the beach is at its most beautiful pose.
No tour to Broome is complete without paying a visit to cable beach – arguably one of the most stunning beaches of the world with 22 km of white sand stretch and a duck egg blue sea down pindan cliffs.
Locals and visitors are often seen with their campervan rental in Broome at the beach during sun set hours to enjoy picnicking and have the special beers. However, if you are more of an active traveller, there are many water sports activities you can try here including swimming, parasailing and surfing.
It forms a major highlight of the town. The place has some of the world’s finest pearl showrooms, shops and cafes.
Willie Creek Pearl Farm
A visit to a pearl farm, stepping back into the enchanting history of the pearling industry of Broome, and a joy ride on a boat for croc hunting – this is what you can call a perfect day out!
The locals believe the park is a place where aboriginals of the region were borne. Follow the walking trails; it will take you through sand dunes and bush landscapes.
No, I am not asking you to watch a movie there. But the place is worth having a look once. Opened for public in 1916, Sun Pictures is the oldest operating picture garden in the whole world. You can sit outdoor and enjoy watching a movie under the moonlight.
Located in close proximity to the beach, Masto’s brewery is the most remote micro-brewery on earth. Though building is ancient, beer and food sold here are modern. Try the Ginger beer and Mango beer for one huge kick and gave-me-all-hunger.
Now raise your fingers, who’s going to travel to Broome?
