Broome, also known by its Aboriginal (Yawuru people) name ‘Rubibi’ is a coastal pearling and tourist town in the Kimberley region of Western Australia. Described as one of the most extraordinary places in the world to visit, Broome is a multicultural melting pot and gateway to one of the world’s great wilderness areas. This colourful pearling capital beckons travellers from around Australia and the world.
In the 1880s, Broome was a pearling town, attracting workers from China, Japan, Indonesia, Malaysia, and Europe. These influences are alive in Broome today, alongside a strong First Nations culture, giving the town an ambience unlike anywhere else.

Chinatown overlooking Roebuck Bay in the heart of old Broome is a fascinating place to learn some of Broome’s history. Contrasting the red rocks of Gantheaume Point and the dusky sands of heritage-listed Roebuck Bay marine park is the 22-kilometre white sandy stretch of Cable Beach home to resorts and restaurants and the famous sunset camel ride.
Chinatown became a multicultural hub after discovering the world's largest pearl shell species, the Pinctada Maxima. You can still see the distinctive corrugated iron buildings from the pearling crew camps. Today’s Chinatown is a mix of old and new with trendy al fresco cafes and restaurants and dazzling pearl showrooms.
At Gantheaume Point you can take an adventure to a secluded beach and step in the footprints of giants. During low tide, 120-million-year-old perfectly preserved dinosaur tracks are revealed in the beach’s red rocks. There are prints of several dinosaur species who roamed the area during the Cretaceous period.

Your tour will start in the hatchery then head out on the water to see the shells growing in Willie Creek. Along the way, you’ll discover how the Australian Southern Sea Cultured Pearl is produced and before leaving, visit the jewellery showroom to shop for a stunning souvenir from Australia’s pearl capital.
