If you’ve been considering organising Kimberley cruises 2019 or are hoping to sneak in a trip this year, chances are you’ll be spending some time in the Broome area. Acting as the gateway for the rest of the Kimberley, this coastal town is a popular holiday destination thanks to its picturesque scenery and laidback lifestyle. Let’s take a look at some our favourite activities that you should try next time you’re in Broome!
1. Willie Creek Pearl Farm
Broome has a rich history of pearling and the industry continues to be an important part of the economy for the region. To learn more about pearling, pay a visit to Willie Creek Pearl Farm. The stunning location is an experience in itself and you’ll be able to see first-hand the process involved with producing cultured pearls. For an added extra, you can also experience a scenic helicopter ride for a totally different perspective.
2. Sunset camel ride
Most people have seen pictures of tourists riding camels in Broome and for very good reason – it’s a truly unforgettable experience! Embrace your inner tourist by going along for a sunset camel ride along legendary Cable Beach and watch as the horizon transforms during one of Broome’s spectacular sunsets. Bring along your camera to capture the beautiful views and make sure someone takes a snap of you with your friendly camel!
3. Broome Historical Museum
Even if you’re not a history buff, paying a visit to the Broome Historical Museum is well worth it. The impressive collection is spread across three buildings and provides fascinating insight into the past of this incredible part of the world. If you’re heading off to see the rest of the Kimberley, a visit to the museum will give you some context for your upcoming adventure.
4. Malcolm Douglas Crocodile Park and Animal Refuge
A visit to the Malcolm Douglas Wilderness Park lets you get up close and personal with the local wildlife. You’ll be able to see the massive salties in action with daily feeding so you can really get an idea of their sheer size. You can also visit the resident wildlife including emus, cassowarys, kangaroos, snakes and lizards who call the refuge home.
5. Matso’s Broome Brewery
Take the time to take full advantage of the relaxed Broome lifestyle by paying a visit to Matso’s Broome Brewery which offers a range of specialised beers. With stunning views over Roebuck Bay, you can sit back on the balcony and take it all in while you try some beer and sample local food. It doesn’t get much better than that!
