With two days in Broome, you’ll be able to fully explore the sights of this historic Western Australian town, get out into the surrounding nature, and maybe even go whale watching. From learning about the pearl industry to riding a camel at sunset, here’s how to make the most of your time.
Day 1: See the Town
Morning: Get your bearings and see Broome’s top attractions on a morning sightseeing tour. Explore historical landmarks and natural wonders, including Town Beach, the Japanese Cemetery, Gantheaume Point, and Cable Beach. Alternatively, wander at your own pace on a self-guided audio tour.
Afternoon: Get a whole new perspective on the town by embarking on a scenic airplane or helicopter flight. You’ll get an excellent view of the coastline, comprising Cable Beach, Willie Creek Pearl Farm, Gantheaume Point, and the rugged red Pindan Cliffs.
Night: If you’re visiting between June and September, you have the chance to see humpback whales. A sunset cruise aboard a catamaran lets you get up-close, uninterrupted views of the magnificent mammals. Afterward, check out the sophisticated dining scene—downtown is home to a variety of restaurants, from Japanese to Indian and Italian.
Day 2: Have an Adventure
Morning: Kick off your second day with some thrills. Ride a jet seaplane to Talbot Bay. Then, take an exhilarating speedboat trip through the Horizontal Falls—the area’s famed narrow, cliff-wrapped cataracts—before cruising through the surrounding bays and creeks. These tours typically include an onboard breakfast or lunch.
Afternoon: Discover Broome’s pearl industry with a trip to Willie Creek Pearl Farm or Paspaley Pearl Farm. Visitors typically participate in a pearling master class, take a boat cruise, and learn how to identify and care for different types of pearls.
Night: Cap off two perfect days in Broome with a relaxing sunset camel ride over the flat white sands of Cable Beach. Some sightseeing tours of Broome offer sunset camel rides as an optional add-on, but you can also book a stand-alone tour.
