Discover some of the most famous and popular Broome attractions and see them all on our Broome sightseeing tours.

Cable Beach

Cable Beach is a 22 kilometre-long stretch of pure white sand, set against a backdrop of red ochre cliffs and fringed by the turquoise waters of the Indian Ocean. Ride a camel along the beach at sunrise or sunset. The beach is very much a part of Broome’s history, earning its name from the telegraph cable laid between Broome and Java in 1889,connecting Australia's North West with the world.

 

Sun Pictures

Sun Pictures is the oldest and longest running outdoor cinema in the world opening to the public as a picture theatre in 1916. Initially opening with silent movies featuring piano accompaniments it developed over the years with the first sounded movie beginning in 1933. Located in Chinatown, the cinema is an integral and distinctive part of the Broome community.

 

Japanese Cemetary

The Japanese Cemetery in Broome is the largest Japanese cemetery inAustralia dating back to the early pearling days. Hundreds of Japanese pearl shell divers died from the bends or drowning. One large stone obelisk in the cemetery honours those who were drowned at sea in the1908 cyclone claiming 50 lives.

 

Sunset at Gantheaume Point

Along to the south of the broad expanse of Cable Beach on the Indian Ocean side of the Broome peninsula is Gantheaume Point. Here, deep red, rugged rocks are in stark contrast to the impossibly blue Indian Ocean. From here you can also witness a breathtaking sunset.

 

Staircase to the Moon

Witness a breathtaking natural phenomenon known as Staircase to theMoon. It is caused by the rising of the full moon reflecting off the exposed mudflats at extremely low tide - creating a beautiful optical illusion of stairs reaching to the moon.
