Broome

Broome is where the sky meets the land, the desert meets the sea, where white sands, red rocks and cobalt blue waters come together.

Originally founded in the late 1880’s as a pearling port, Broome boasts a multicultural population lured here by the promise of finding their fortunes. Koepanger, Malay, Chinese, Japanese, European and Aboriginal cultures have all blended to create a captivatingly welcoming and colourful personality that is the heart and soul of Broome. Stroll on the world famous Cable Beach, home to an abundance of sea life, dotted with pindan cliffs, where the desert meets the ocean. Long renowned as one of the world’s best beaches Cable Beach takes its name from the Submarine Telegraph Cable that was laid in 1889, connecting Broome to Java, and becoming the main form of communication between Broome and the rest of the world. Today, it is a popular location to relax in the sun, go for a swim, sail on a pearl lugger, go fishing or just watch the tide go out and enjoy a magnificent sunset.

Wander through Chinatown and enjoy the contradiction of Broome, where historical buildings stand side by side with the architecture of the modern world. Among the modern pearl and art galleries, the infrastructures of the past subtly remind you of a day gone by, where pearling masters were celebrated and pearl luggers lined the shores of RoebuckBay. If you take the time to explore, you’ll discover that Broome is rich in history and ethnic influence of the many cultures that have reached Broome’s shores. The architecture is not the only aspect of Broome influenced by cultural diversity.
