Your city sightseeing tour of Broome starts with a visit to Chinatown, where you’ll listen to stories about the district’s history. Browse jewelry at one of the city’s famed pearl shops, and listen to a historical audio performance at the retro Sun Pictures outdoor cinema.
Head into Broome’s old quarter, admiring historical architecture and homes that were once owned by the city’s many pearlers, and continue to Town Beach, where you’ll listen to stories about Broome during World War II, when the city was attacked by the Japanese. Then lighten things up with a stop at Matso’s Broome Brewery for a refreshing glass of ale or ginger beer before visiting the Japanese Cemetery where many of the pearl divers were laid to rest.
Other sights include the racecourse and Gantheaume Point, home to dinosaur footprints preserved in the red rocks (visible at low-tide times). Then hear the fascinating story of Anastasia’s Pool, a naturally formed circle in the rocks, as you observe the site.
Your tour ends in one of two ways, both of which take place a bit outside of town at Cable Beach, famous for its long, flat stretch of white sand. Either enjoy a walk along the ocean and a few snacks while you watch the sunset, or go on a sunset camel ride, one of northern Australia’s most popular desert-style activities.
Please note: The camel ride option must be requested at the time of booking.
