Relax at the poolside bar and enjoy Broome’s tropical climate after exploring Broome’s history and see the sunset over famous Cable Beach. Hire a scooter from the hostel and explore the local area. Take a day trip to nearby sights, or chill after a longer tour through the Kimberley.
At the hostel
Free – lounge by the pool
Relax in a lush tropical paradise by the pool on one of the loungers or jump in and cool off. With a poolside bar, you won't ever need to move!
GRAB A DRINK
Grab a drink or two with your new pals (or make some new friends!) at the hostel bar. You'll need a drink after a hot Broome day.
Visit Cable Beach, one of the most stunning beaches in the world with 22 kilometres of pristine white sand and pindan cliffs. Relax, swim in the crystal clear turquoise water, have a picnic or sit and watch the sun set over the ocean.
See the natural phenomenon Staircase to the Moon. For 2-3 days every month between April and October at very low tide, the moon reflects a 'staircase' on the water that leads up to the moon. Pop in at the local Staircase Markets at Town Beach!
Marvel at dinosaur footprints. Head out to Gantheaume Point to see the 130 million year old dinosaur footprints visible at low tide. This gorgeous location features the contrasting colours of deep pindan red cliffs and the beautiful turquoise ocean.
Explore China Town. The main hub of Broome is also known as Chinatown, which wonderfully demonstrates the eclectic and diversity of this town’s history and population.
Walk the Streeter’s Jetty, the original jetty for the pearling luggers based in Broome. The jetty is located on Dampier Terrace and is still used to support vessels for modern day pearling and the occasional lugger.
Explore the Dutch Flying Boat Wrecks, located off shore from Town Beach. The wrecks are evidence of the Japanese air raid on Broome during WWII. At extremely low tides the wrecks are visible to those who walk across the Roebuck Bay mud flats.
Enjoy the weekend markets at the Courthouse with food and local craft
Visit the Japanese Cemetery and learn about the early settlers in the Kimberley and their unique history.
