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.
Broome has a Tropical climate with two seasons – dry and wet. The dry season runs from April to October. The wet season starts in November and runs until the end of March or so. During the dry season the weather is beautiful – warm days with clear, blue skies and balmy nights. The wet season features hot days and rain in the form of thunderstorms and torrential downpours.
