Join the daily pilgrimage of nature lovers as they embark on the scenic 7-kilometre walk from Cable Beach to Gantheaume Point. The rocky outcrop offers not only stunning views of the Indian Ocean but also a touch of prehistoric charm with dinosaur footprints etched into the rocks. As you follow the stunning coastline, you’ll be treated to breathtaking views of the turquoise waters, with the possibility of spotting whales, dolphins, and sea turtles along the way. Let the cool sea breeze envelop you as you immerse yourself in the rugged beauty of the coastline, and perhaps enjoy a picnic with your loved ones. For those who prefer a one-way walk, a morning bus service conveniently connects to Gantheaume. Whether you’re an early riser or just seeking a refreshing morning stroll, this walk is an unforgettable experience that truly captures the natural wonders of Broome.

Paspaley Plaza is the premier shopping centre, boasting over 35 specialty stores, a supermarket, and a post office, open seven days a week. The Boulevard Shopping Centre is another great option, with over 22 specialty stores and a supermarket also open seven days a week. Don’t miss Hidden Valley Handcrafts, a charming store filled with handmade soaps, scented oils, and souvenirs, and Simply Broome, offering indigenous art and handmade gift items. 

Staircase to the Moon

Broome’s Staircase to the Moon is a natural wonder that you won’t want to miss. It’s a phenomenon that occurs for the first three days after a full moon, when the moon rises and reflects its light on the pools of Roebuck Bay during low tide, creating a stunning ‘staircase’ effect. The best viewing points to witness this mesmerising sight are the Mangrove Hotel or Town Beach. While there, indulge in the culinary delights from the hawker’s stalls, serving an array of delicious food, and enjoy live music that accompanies this magical experience. See dates here:

Rock Pools

Escape the heat and soak up the serene atmosphere of the natural rock pools located on the northern end of Cable Beach. Broome boasts some of the most beautiful rock pools, and they are continually topped up with fresh seawater due to the area’s huge tides. One of the most popular spots is Gantheaume Point, just after high tide. While you’re there, keep an eye out for the remnants of Anastasia’s Pool, which was carved out by the former lighthouse keeper, Patrick Percy, to provide relief for his wife, Anastasia, who suffered from arthritis.
