Broome in Aug-Sep

We are thinking of coming to Broome from Victoria in Aug-September. Is this a good time to come? It looks like on this website it is one of the better times to come.
Is there anything we should be wary of?

Yep, I'd say it's a good time for Broome

Hi Nadine,
Well, I'd say, yes, Aug-Sep is a good time for Broome. In MY opinion. But I don't know what matters to you or what you are looking for.

Aug-Sep means you avoid peak tourist season. July is the busiest month by far. Early August may still be crazy, but from then onwards the number of people should drop.

Mind you, Broome will still be packed. You should still book any accommodation as far in advance as possible. Also sort out a hire car if you need one. It's not like Broome will be deserted. Just not quite as mad as in mid July...

The temperatures will gradually increase. The further you get into September the hotter it gets. I don't find it all that hot in Broome ever, compared to Kununurra, but compared to Shepparton... I probably wouldn't schedule any long afternoon walks in the sun.

One thing that's good all around: the ocean is safe for swimming at that time of the year! So apart form still needing to book ahead I can't think of anything to be wary of.

Lurajarri Trail
by: Anonymous

I am just trying to find information on the Lurajarri trail I am having no luck with their official website? I just want to talk to someone who knows dates and prices for 2014? Can anyone help? I will be in Broome from the third of August.

The official website is the only available source I am afraid.

They have a contact page and they say they have not yet set 2014 dates.
