During the right time of year (June through to September) magnificent humpback whales migrate up the West Australian coast to the warmer and calmer waters of Broome.  A number of tour operators can take out for an experience of a lifetime, seeing whales, dolphins, and other amazing marine life frolic off the coast of Broome.

Check out the Crocs

If you’re visiting Broome then I would definitely recommend taking a trip out to the Malcolm Douglas Crocodile Park.  This fantastic park showcases some of the biggest saltwater crocodiles in Western Australia.  There are also plenty of other species to see including other species of crocodiles and alligators, dingos, cassowaries, and lots of different bird species.

Check out the Sunset

When I was visiting Broome I was blown away by the amazing sunsets.  Most of the time we would head down to cable beach to sit back, relax and watch the sunset.  However, on our last evening there we decided to head out on one of the local sunset cruises which was an unbelievable experience.  Cruising along the calm waters, whilst watching the sunset over the turquoise blues of the Kimberley coastline was a perfect way to finish the holiday.

Willie Creek Pearl Farm

Scenic Helicopter flight

One of the best ways to view Broome is via air.  There are a number of different helicopter flight packages available with most flights giving you a birds-eye view of some of the main attractions and landmarks of Broome, including Dampier Creek, Gantheaume Point, Cable Beach, and Willie Creek.

Broome Camel Rides

One of the most iconic things to do whilst visiting Broome is to take a camel ride along the beautiful cable beach whilst the sun sets in the background.  

With a number of operators to choose from, you meet at cable beach and then head along in pairs at a nice relaxing pace allowing you to kick back and relax, whilst taking in the beautiful sunset.
