There’s nothing that says Broome, like a sunset camel ride along Cable Beach. For many holidaymakers, it’s become a bucket list thing to do and is certainly an iconic part of a Western Australian adventure. Cable Beach is a 22-kilometre stretch of soft white sand and clear turquoise waters and the Broome camel tours offer visitors the opportunity to experience the beach from a higher vantage point.
Cable beach is renowned not only for its camel rides but as one of the most beautiful beaches in Australia. As the sky changes colour at sunset, it’s reflected in the shallow water covering the beach making it the most picturesque backdrop for the camel safari ride. These friendly, docile animals are easy to mount and ride and the soft sand underneath makes for an even more smooth adventure.
Australia's Top End and the Kimberley await with adventures to be had, dreamtime culture to enlighten and glorious nature to explore. Marvel at the termite mounds of Litchfield National Park, see Rock Art and cruise the Yellow Water wetlands in Kakadu, discover Katherine Gorge and the Ord River, soar above the Bungle Bungles, see the Derby Boab Tree for yourself, then finish with a camel ride on stunning Cable Beach.
