Travelling to Broome in February

by Nat
(Perth)

Is mid february really not a good time to travel to Broome due to the wet weather? I have booked to stay at the Sanctuary Rendezvous from the 17th Feb to the 21st Feb and every person that I have spoken to has said that it is the worst time to visit Broome due to the monsoonal weather, cyclones, heavy downpours etc. I was wanting to veg by the pool or am I kidding myself?????

Broome in February

Hi Nat,
You'd have to be unlucky to hit a cyclone exactly while you are there, but it is certainly a possibility, and then it may rain heavily for several days non stop.

Or you can get thunderstorms in the afternoons. (But most people love those. They are a spectacle to watch and they cool things down.)

But you may also have sunshine the whole time. It's impossible to predict. If the sun shines it'll be stinking hot and humid, so vegging by the pool is the only thing to do anyway :-).

(See the free guide for more details on the weather.)

Is it the worst time of the year? That depends on your perception, I guess. And on your luck with the weather... A wet season visit is always a gamble, especially if it is such a short one...

Thought I would go up this year in Feb 17-20. Normally there in April May. How much different is the weather this time of year?
