Broome is the gateway to the Kimberleys and a renowned destination for rest and relaxation, writes Neerav Bhatt.
Time is simply slower and more relaxed in Broome. My souvenir t-shirt, bought as a momento of my trip there, said “Slip into Broome Time” and explains it best. Once you’ve hung around for a few days, city conventions like the days of the week or even the time of day, melt away into irrelevance.
Peak season for travelling to Broome is late May to early September when you can expect mostly dry weather with maximum temperatures around 30°C.
