Flights to Broome are in high demand during the dry season – May to September. This is when most tourists come to lie on Cable Beach, dip their toes in the Indian Ocean and perhaps take a camel ride. But there is much more to Broome than Cable Beach, beautiful as that 22km (14 mile) stretch of soft golden sand is. Head towards Cape Leveque Road and take a journey taken by the local people for thousands of years. This path with take you to the Dampier Peninsula where red earth landscape and unspoiled beaches are waiting to be discovered. At the tip of the Cape Leveque Road is the Kooljaman Resort, the award-winning Aboriginal-owned resort.

The Rowley Shoals lie 300km (186 miles) out to sea from Broome. They are a diving secret, one of the world’s best, yet one of the least known dive sites.

What is good to know if travelling to Broome?

  • Between Broome and Kooljaman is Beagle Bay, which has an amazing church. The white Sacred Heart Church was built by German Pallottine priests and brothers during the First World War when their movements were restricted. They decorated the interior of the church – especially the main altar – with mother-of-pearl shells. The side altars are decorated with opercula, a rare stone taken from shellfish. Time has taken its toll on the church and restoration and conservation projects are underway. 
  • The Kooljaman resort is remote, isolated and pure heaven. It’s about 220km (137 miles) north of Broome on the Dampier Peninsula. The resort is jointly owned by the Cape Leveque Aboriginal communities One Arm Point and Djarindjin. Snorkelling, fishing and enjoying the empty beach are just some of the activities you can enjoy. 
  • From July to October whale-watchers can observe the migrating whales breach offshore. 
  • Sun Pictures is Broome’s outdoor cinema and the “oldest open air cinema in operation”. It opened in 1916. 
  • Willie Creek Pearl Farm is about 35km (22 miles) from Broome. It’s a working pearl farm and offers demonstrations on pearl seeding.
