Broome

 

Broome is a historical pearling town situated in the Kimberley region in Western Australia.

The town is situated on the Indian Ocean and the main beach, Cable Beach, is a beautiful expanse of golden sand.

The sunsets on Cable Beach are magnificent and can be enjoyed on the beach or from one of the restaurants on the esplanade.

The town has an interesting history based around the exploits of the men and women who developed the pearling industry, starting with the harvesting of oysters for mother of pearl in the 1880s to the current major cultured pearl farming enterprises.

Overall Atmosphere: Combination
Combination Atmosphere destinations combine elements of both cultural and natural destinations, where this combination is itself essential to the travel experience. Common examples are Archaeological Sites (where culture is usually experienced outdoors), Scenic Local Markets (where indigenous cultures interact outdoors), Hotsprings and Vineyard Areas (where nature provides the raw materials but humans create the surroundings), and Unique Cultural Landscapes (where humans and nature interact in innovative ways, as in the elaborate rice terracing systems of Asia).

Combination Interests typically fall somewhere in the middle of the three types of primary interests in terms of
(a) how climate-dependent they are
(b) how accessible and physically demanding they are.
Featuring both cultural and natural attractions.

Unusual Local Feature

Pearl farming

The Broome area has long been known as the pearl capital of Australia. To see how this works, a good destination is Willie Creek Pearl Farm, about 35 km from Broome. This is working pearl farm with demonstrations on pearl seeding.

Another option is Pearl Luggers -- two reconditioned luggers (small sailing ships) and a presentation on pearl diving.
Natural
Beaches
Among the best of Broom’s many beaches are Cable, Redell and Town Beach. For a different view of the ocean, there is Gantheaume Point, known for its red cliffs set against turquoise blue water.
