Top Things to do in Cable Beach – feel the essence of Australia

If you've ever dreamt of walking down a stretch of serene white sand lining the tranquil blue ocean, then you've dreamt of the Cable beach; the jewel of Western Australia.


Camel Rides at Sunset

The 22 km long stretch of pure white sand on the beautiful Cable beach in Broome, Western Australia is surrounded by the red ochre cliffs in the background and lined by the calm and peaceful Indian Ocean, creating a mesmerizing sight during the sunset. It is a real treat to trot down along this beach on a well tamed camel moving as calm as an animal could be. Camel rides are offered in the northern parts of the beach. Riding on these 'ships of the desert' is a unique experience which is the reason that many tourists are keen to get a chance for this.


Horizontal Falls

It's truly amazing how nature can surprise you with her creativity. One of the best examples is the majestic horizontal falls in the Kimberly region of Broome, Western Australia. The almost horizontal waterfall is created by the tidal waves that pass through a narrow cliff passage formed by two protruding ridges of the McLarty Ranges. You can ride a boat through the small gap to the bay behind. If you want to visit the horizontal falls, you can either take a direct flight through seaplane adventures or a day cruise. It is better to have a weather check before you make plans for your visit.


Gantheaume Point

Gantheaume Point is located towards the southern end of Cable beach, famous among both tourists and locals alike for its picturesque setting created by the red rock cliffs. At low tides, you can see a track with some well-preserved dinosaur footprints believed to be 130 million years old. This is a very popular attraction for little kids. The Gantheaume Point Lighthouse is a famous observation stop among tourists who love to watch dolphins and migrating whales. The Anastasia's Pool is a small man-made pool on the rocks created by a former lighthouse keeper for his wife who had been suffering from arthritis. The salt water in the pool is said to have a healing effect.


Minyirr Park

The Minyirr Park located behind the Cable beach is a good place to get an idea about the lives of local indigenous people. There are three walking trails named Nagula, Lurujarri, and Minyirr. Nagula refers to the pathway towards ocean marked with blue topped bollards. It's a walk of around 20-30 minutes where you have a chance to spot the turtle trail maker. Lurujarri is the green path through the dune system where you should be on alert for the boomerang trail maker. Minyirr or Pindan path through the bush is to look for the footprints of emu man.


Moon Stairway

This is a beautiful spectacle created by nature during the period from March to October. At very low tides on a full moon night at Roebuck Bay, the water on the mudflats creates an optical illusion with the reflection of the moon resembling a staircase to reach the moon. It is fascinating to watch and people from all around the world make it a point to see this during their trip to Cable beach. Accommodation facilities are well developed with a range of beautiful resorts like the Oaks Cable Beach Sanctuary.
