What to see in Broome

In the far reaches of Western Australia, Broome offers a beguiling mix of wild, natural beauty and rich cultural tapestry, presenting visitors with an array of unforgettable experiences.

A cruise to Broome wouldn't be complete without delving into the history and intricacies of pearling, an industry that's the lifeblood of this coastal town. Located just 38 kilometres from Broome, Willie Creek Pearl Farm offers a chance to explore the journey of pearls in a stunning setting. Guided tours provide insight into modern cultured pearling processes, from seeding through to the harvesting of pearls. You'll be transported through the crystal-clear waters on a boat tour, where the intricate methods of pearl farming are demonstrated firsthand. Learn about the dangers and difficulties pearlers faced in the past and how this industry has shaped the region. The captivating landscape surrounding Willie Creek adds to the experience, with opportunities to spot local wildlife and enjoy the tranquil setting. And, of course, the showroom presents the chance to purchase genuine Australian pearls, a timeless keepsake from your visit.

Often described as one of the greatest natural wonders of the world, the Horizontal Falls are a phenomenon that has to be seen to be believed. Located in the remote Kimberley region, they are challenging to reach by land, making a scenic flight an ideal way to witness this spectacle. Various operators run tours from Broome, providing the unique opportunity to soar above this stunning landscape. The Horizontal Falls are caused by powerful tidal movements pushing through two narrow cliff passages, creating a variation in ocean level on either side and a waterfall effect - except, remarkably, they run horizontally. The aerial view offers a unique perspective and unforgettable vistas.

The historical narrative of Broome is one of adventure, fortune, multiculturalism and sometimes conflict, all intertwined with the pearling industry. Taking a historical walking tour through the town’s streets is a fantastic way to soak in this rich history. Begin at the Broome Historical Museum, where exhibits offer a detailed backdrop to the town's pearling past, including the impact of World War II on the community. Then, stroll to Sun Pictures, the world's oldest operating open-air cinema, which still shows films daily. Walk the Japanese Cemetery, the final resting place for more than 900 Japanese divers who lost their lives in the pearling industry, a poignant reminder of the town's multicultural heritage and the dangers of its primary industry. Round off your walk with a visit to Chinatown, once the bustling hub of pearl sheds, billiard saloons and entertainment venues, now a charming district of galleries, cafés, and pearl showrooms.
