Broome’s Cable Beach camel tours

One to tick off your bucket list

Take a sunset safari along beautiful Cable Beach

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.
