The True Broome

Cable Beach, Broome

I lived in Broome on two occasions. In late 1980 and again in early 1990 for five years.

I returned this year after being away for 10 years. We took a trip to Cape Leveque with Kimberley Wild Tours and it was terrific. We also did a lot of other things while we were there as it was the Shinju Festival in late August early September, the best time to go before it gets too hot.

The environment is pristine and the pearl shopping is to die for. I would highly recommend The Kimberleys and The Top End to fellow Aussies as it is vastly different to The East Coast of Australia.

Everyone I have spoken to about Broome says that it holds a special place in their hearts.
