The pearling capital of Australia, Broome is the western gateway to the Kimberley wilderness – home to world-famous Cable Beach sunsets and the natural phenomenon of the Staircase to the Moon. 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. Their discovery in the 1800s fuelled a mass-migration almost as epic as the gold rush. Japanese, Filipino and Malay pearl divers arrived in droves seeking their fortune, creating a melting pot of cultures that makes Broome the multicultural town it is today.
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.
