Kid Friendly Activities in Broome – Family Fun in Western Australia

From spending days at the beach to exploring the shores for dinosaur footprints, Broome in Western Australia offers a fun filled family holiday. Here are some activities your kids are bound to love.


Exploring Cable Beach

One of the main draws here is undoubtedly Cable Beach. Ideally look to find family accommodation in Broome that is within easy reach of this sun-drenched stretch of shore. Oaks Broome is one such option, and once you have settled in take the kids down to Cable Beach where there is plenty of fun to be experienced in the sand and surf. This stunning stretch of coastline offers plenty of space to run about and swim under supervision. During low tide, the waters are calmer and you have less strong ocean currents, ideal if the little ones want to paddle about. Do look to head to the patrolled section of the beach though. This vast beach area also has a section that can be accessed by 4WD vehicle and you can look to find a nice spot for you and your family and enjoy a wonderful beach picnic.


Camel Rides

This is an activity one may not think of when visiting Australia, but in Broome, camel rides are on offer and the kids are sure to enjoy it. Cable Beach is once again the spot where you can try such rides out especially during sunset. While this has become quite a "touristy" thing to do, it nevertheless can be quite fun. It does provide an Egyptian like feel to it (minus the pyramids and desert of course!) and the chance to ride camels is certainly a unique experience that is bound to be one of the top holiday memories for the kids.


Discovering Dino Tracks

Kids of all ages love dinosaurs and while watching Jurassic World in 3D offers its own set of thrills, dino-enthusiasts, and aspiring palaeontologists will love actually discovering real life footprints left by a dinosaur! When in Broome, look to head to Gantheaume Point where during the low tide period you can come across such prehistoric remnants that are believed to be around 130 million years old. Do take care however when getting here since it can be a bit tricky in terms of rugged terrain. However, kids can certainly explore the area and though the footprints can sometimes be hard to differentiate, it is still a fun activity worth trying.


Whale Watching

While dinosaurs are extinct, the world still has some pretty huge animals, the largest type of which can be seen swimming wild and free in the waters around Broome; the majestic whale. This activity is one that the entire family can enjoy and part of the thrill is the boat ride itself heading out to sea in search of this magnificent marine mammal. The ocean waters near the coast are home to a huge range of Humpback Whales and this pod which can number to around 40,000 is the largest of its kind in the world when it comes to this whale species.
