Broome


Way more exciting than the name would imply

From its romantic pearling history to the cosmopolitan character of Chinatown, its incredibly clear waters, to its red sandstone cliffs and endless white sand beaches, the colours of Broome are sure to leave a lasting impression.

Broome is situated on the north-west coast of Western Australia on a narrow peninsula, surrounded by the azure blue waters of the Indian Ocean and Roebuck Bay. It is a town where you can retire to the sound of waves crashing onshore. The town grew out of the discovery of the world’s largest pearl shell, attracting hundreds of people like a gold rush. The pearl industry slump mid last century was not enough to drive them away and they remain captivated by Broome's natural beauty and laid-back atmosphere. The same spirit that attracted pioneers over a century ago still brings people today. With its own curious architecture - a mixture of old colonial mission houses, churches, pearling master huts and houses resembling a unique style born more than eighty years ago, you will fall in love with Broome.
