How to Spend 1 Day in Broome

How to Spend 1 Day in Broome

Surrounded by the shimmering Indian Ocean and the creeks, mangroves, and mudflats of Roebuck Bay, the charming, laid-back town of Broome marks the westernmost point of the rugged, remote Kimberley region. From historic sites to camel rides, it’s possible to see the best of Broome in 24 hours. Here’s how.

Morning: See the Sights

Kick off your day in Broome with a morning orientation tour to get your bearings and see the top attractions. Explore historical landmarks and natural wonders, including Town Beach, the Japanese Cemetery, Gantheaume Point, and Cable Beach. Tours typically include morning tea and round-trip transfers from your hotel. 

For a different perspective on the town and its coastline, hop on an airplane or helicopter—scenic flights of various lengths depart throughout the day. If you prefer to explore at your own pace, head out on a self-guided audio tour.

Afternoon: Dive Into the Pearl Industry

Broome began life as a pearling town and was shaped by the lucrative but dangerous industry of pearl diving. Discover the history and legacy of the pearl industry on a half-day tour of Willie Creek Pearl Farm or Paspaley Pearl Farm, and see firsthand how pearls are produced. Visitors typically participate in a pearling master class, take a boat cruise, and learn how to identify and care for different types of pearls. Tours usually include refreshments and round-trip hotel transfers, and some also include lunch.

Night: Go Whale Watching or Camel Riding

If you’re visiting between June and September (Australia’s winter), you have the chance to see humpback whales as they journey from the cold waters of Antarctica to Broome, where they spend the season mating, calving, and nursing their young. A sunset cruise aboard a catamaran lets you get up-close, uninterrupted views of the magnificent mammals. Alternatively, enjoy a sunset camel ride along Cable Beach’s long, flat stretch of white sand. Some sightseeing tours of Broome offer sunset camel rides as an optional add-on, but you can also book a stand-alone tour.
