Things to do in Broome – Explore Yawuru Country

Broome sits along a narrow strip of the Kimberly's eastern edge; surrounded by the glistening waters of the Indian Ocean the place is an oasis of creeks, mangrove forests and great experiences.

Discover and Enjoy Cable Beach

Cable Beach is indeed the most popular landmark in Western Australia. Blessed with shimmering azure blue waters and soft white sand that seems to get lost in the sunset, this beach is well known for its camel rides. That's right, you can book camel tours along the gorgeous beach while taking a 4X4 to the northern edge offers you a lovely spot for enjoying evening drinks. To the south of the beach are walking trails that head towards the Red Dunes of Minyirr Park; a sacred place for the Yawuru People. Guests at Oaks Broome will find this iconic beach is a mere 7 minutes' walk away and such a spot close to this shoreline will definitely be the best accommodation in Broome you can secure.

Dive at Rowley Shoals Marine Park

This park is made up of three beautiful coral atolls that sit on the Indian Ocean, just 300kms from the Broome city centre. The place is tipped to offer some of the best scuba diving experiences in Australia, as the protected park boasts over 600 species of marine life-forms, together with 200 types of gorgeous coral. It takes about 12 hours to reach the shoals from Broome, hence, visitors are few; this leaves the place crowded-free, serene and unspoilt. Experienced divers can book multi-night cruises via a number of Broome tour operators.

Stunning Gantheaume Point and its Hidden Dinosaur Prints

This is a cherished lookout point, which hides within its folds, 135 million year old dinosaur footprints. The place is quite mesmerizing at sunrise or sunset; times when the verdant Pindan Cliffs turn a magical scarlet and the Indian Ocean shimmers in golden hues. Hidden by the tide are several dinosaur footprints believed to be the oldest in existence; they can, however, be seen only at very low-tide. When exploring do be mindful of the slippery rocks and remember to keep a lookout for the ospreys returning to their nests located in the lighthouse – fish in tow.

The Verdant Broome Bird Observatory

Roebuck Bay home to some of the best Broome hotels is perfect for some bird watching. Head over to the mudflats and you will be rewarded with sights of migratory birds that come here from far off lands. Just 25kms from Broome is the Bird Obbie, equipped with serene walking trails and verdant surroundings. Check with your hotel in Broome and book any one of the many tours that take you to the mudflats and surrounding regions.

Catch a Movie at Sun Pictures

This is the world's oldest picture gardens still in operation; the vintage Sun Pictures gives one a chance to sit back in a canvas deck chair and watch the show. Dating back to 1916, the place has withstood time. Located on the airport's flight path, this open-air theatre has survived through wars, racial protests, floods and much more. A little gem from the past, do make time to visit Sun Pictures, which by the way does screen the latest flicks.
