How to Spend 3 Days in Broome

How to Spend 3 Days in Broome

The isolation of Western Australia—synonymous with tropical beaches and the rugged outdoors—has served Broome well, helping to preserve the town’s frontier feel despite a well-developed tourist industry. Gourmet restaurants and luxe resorts may have arrived, but you’ll still find outback appeal. Here’s how to spend three days in Broome.

Day 1: Beautiful Broome

Start the day on a guided tour of Broome’s top landmarks, checking out restored pearling luggers in Chinatown and passing by old pearling masters’ homes. Browse the Historical Museum to understand how the pearl industry has evolved since the late 1800s, when Japanese, Aboriginal, and Malay pearl divers risked their lives in pursuit of the valuable treasure. For a deeper look, visit a nearby pearl farm. 

In the afternoon, see dinosaur footprints at Gantheaume Point before heading to Cable Beach. With its white sands and turquoise waters, the beach is perfect for swimming, sunbathing—and sunset camel rides. Finally, unwind with a movie under the stars at the Sun Pictures outdoor theater.

Day 2: Gorgeous gorges

The Kimberley region is renowned for its gorges, and Broome is the ideal base from which to explore them. Accessible only during the dry season, prehistoric Geikie Gorge is one of the area’s beloved icons. Whether you’re exchanging toothy grins with freshwater crocodiles from the safety of your boat, marveling at the variety of birdlife, or learning about the local Aboriginal culture on a river cruise, you’ll never forget this natural wonder. Alternatively, take a tour to Windjana Gorge, with the prospect of wading Tunnel Creek.

If you’re there between June and September, hop aboard a catamaran at sunset and look for humpback whales at the end of their journey from Antarctica.

Day 3: Something wild

Like your wilderness remote? About 135 miles (220 kilometers) northeast of Broome lies the unspoiled coastline of Cape Leveque. Traverse the landscape on a 4WD tour and admire the white-sand beaches, red cliffs, and turquoise Indian Ocean—splashing around in the pristine waters, you’ll feel like you’re on a desert island. Nearby Lombadina Aboriginal community makes for a worthy detour, with mud-crabbing tours available. Buccaneer Archipelago (aka the Thousand Islands) is best appreciated from the air—embark on a scenic flight for a panorama of beaches, cliffs, and a horizontal waterfall. 

Back in town, cap off your trip with dinner at one of Broome’s many international restaurants.
