Fun in the sun
One of the most popular places to see on a Broome tour is the iconic Cable Beach. Named after a telegraph pole laid between Broome and Java in the 19th century, Cable Beach is popular for swimming and taking a camel ride tour as the sun sets over the water.
Many people come to Broome purely to laze in the sun and enjoy the outdoors. If that sounds like you, make sure to add a tour that visits Town Beach or the more secluded Reddell Beach to your itinerary. You'll even have the chance to do something a bit different with turtle watching kayak tours also available.
As the southern gateway to the Kimberley, Broome is also the starting point for many tours deeper into the Australian outback. If your time is limited you can catch a glimpse of what's on offer by taking a scenic flight over the spectacular Buccaneer Archipelago and Cape Leveque.
Those with more time can take a cruise tour down the King George River where along the way you'll see Aboriginal rock art and all manner of natural wonders including the Prince Regent Nature Reserve, King Cascades, Montgomery Reef and the stunning landscapes of Raft Point.
