Broome

Yawuru Country

A relaxed town of tree-shaded streets and scenic coastal stretches, Broome gained renown as a center of the pearling industry in the late 19th century. Although the town’s recent history largely revolves around that particular trade, Broome has developed into a popular and charming coastal town of nearly 13,000 inhabitants that attracts visitors based on own merits. Situated on the traditional lands of the Yawuru people, Broom serves as home to a large Aboriginal community. Broome is in Kimberley Region.

Message from Tourism Australia
Built on the pearling trade, these days Broome is a popular holiday hub and gateway to the wild Kimberley region. Broome’s rich and colourful history has created a multicultural melting pot that is reflected in the town’s welcoming and laid-back feel. Warm temperatures and palms deliver a tropical vibe that fits perfectly with the many holiday resorts and the stretch of white sand known as Cable Beach. Virgin Australia and Qantas fly to Broome and it is serviced by most Australian capital cities. Otherwise, it’s a 2226 kilometre (1383 mile) drive from Perth, the capital city of Western Australia.
