Ride a Camel on Cable Beach During Sunset

There is an unspoiled picturesque appearance to Broome that makes it all the more appealing to those seeking relaxation. Adorned with vast expanses of rolling golden dunes, Broome depicts the typical appearance of the Arabian Peninsula with the comfortable setting of Australia. Experiencing this unique desert touch is among the many ways of relishing the unusual landscape of the region. However, Broome goes one step further and offers the typical desert like adventures such as camel riding on its picture perfect coastline which has the look of both the desert and the tropics. Cable Beach is one such location to offer this activity. Best indulged in during sundown, the entire expedition is a treat to be savoured, for the camel ride combined with the magically coloured sky is a photo opportunity waiting to be taken advantage of.

Visit the Japanese Cemetery in Broome

Broome boasts a truly intriguing pearling history and learning about this is just as interesting as exploring Broome itself.
