General Information About Broome

The pearling capital of Australia, Broome is the western gateway to the Kimberley wilderness. Affectionately known as the 'pearl of the north', it's the home of South Sea pearls – among the largest and most coveted commercially harvested cultured pearls in the world.

This is also where you'll find another of Broome's gems – Sun Pictures, the oldest operating outdoor cinema in the world. Be sure to wander into the neighbouring galleries and admire the works of some of the Kimberley's most celebrated contemporary and Aboriginal artists.

Not to be upstaged, Mother Nature has blessed Broome with 22 kilometres of beautiful white sand and turquoise water at Cable Beach and striking rust-red cliffs and ancient dinosaur footprints at Gantheaume Point. What's more, on certain dates from March to October when the full moon coincides with low tide at Roebuck Bay, she performs the most awe-inspiring illusion known as the Staircase to the Moon.
