Broome is situated in North-Western Australia, a two and a half hour flight from Perth. The surrounding region is full of colour, culture and captivating scenery. Fiery red ochre cliffs contrast with the unspoiled turquoise waters of the Indian Ocean, dinosaur footprints tell secrets of ancient days and a multi-cultural population provides arts, performances and inviting cuisine. The pearling industry has been an important part of the region's economy. Many places and shops offer visitors closer insight into this trade and the jewellery craft.
Originally founded as a pearling port over 100 years ago, Broome today continues to produce the world’s finest pearls. The 22 kilometres of pristine white sand is called Cable Beach and has been rated one of the top beaches of the world. Not only sand and sea but also the natural phenomenon known as the Staircase to the Moon attract large numbers of visitors to this popular and unique tourist destination in Australia.
Located just south of the equator, the town experiences a sub-tropical climate with warm sunny days and balmy nights. The dry seasons last from May to September and that's when most visitors take the chance to explore the city as well as the Kimberley region.
While Broome has an interesting pearling history, Chinatown, in the heart of the city, continues to lure with its cosmopolitan character and pearl showrooms selling the best of the best to the public.Read More
