Broome & the Dampier Peninsula strike the perfect balance between relaxing holiday and extraordinary adventure.
It's affectionately known as the pearl of the north, and not just for its reputation as the world’s finest producer of South Sea pearls.
This is a tropical oasis of striking contrasts in both colour and culture - beautiful white beaches, turquoise water, rust-red cliffs, rich Aboriginal heritage and a melting pot of Asian flavours in its very own Chinatown. The vibe here is blissfully chilled out too. The locals call like to call it "Broome Time", and all it takes is a stroll on the sands of world-famous Cable Beach to set your own clock to its wonderfully relaxed pace.
There are plenty of unique experiences for those seeking all kinds of adventure. Witness the natural phenomenon of the Staircase to the Moon. Ride a camel train into an Indian Ocean sunset. Walk in the footsteps of dinosaurs. Fish. Spot wildlife. Visit a pearl farm. Catch a movie at the oldest operating picture garden in the world. Take a day trip into the last true wilderness on Earth.
North of Broome, red dirt tracks lead travellers to the Dampier Peninsula.
