Broome, and the Kimberley region in Western Australia, is a beach town that holds a special place in my heart.

From balmy nights under palm trees watching spectacular sunsets to wildlife watching experiences and days spent playing on the beaches, there are plenty of things to do in Broome to make it a worthy stop.

The colors of Broome!

We first visited Broome back in 2004 when we worked on the PasPaley Pearl Farm at Kuri Bay. It was the most exotic adventure I’d ever experienced.

I still have a deep longing to return. It connects to my soul like no other place does, and there are no adequate words to convey why. It’s not just a place, but a way of life – it’s a spiritual energy, it’s a beauty that’s so ancient and mesmerizing.

It may not be the easiest place to get to, but that’s part of its undiscovered and untarnished charm. Here’s some of my favorite activities and attractions that will help you discover that charm for yourself.

Things To Do In Broome

1. Watch a Sunset from Cable Beach Sunset Bar

You’ll soon get hooked on the daily 5 pm Cable Beach event – sunset. One of my favourite things to do in Broome (and probably ever) is watch the sunset on the beautiful white sand Cable Beach.

Come 4 pm, the people stream in with chairs, blankets, and picnics to celebrate the end of the day with that giant red orb set over the Indian Ocean.

Sunsets in Broome are some of the best in the world. You can do it yourself, or enjoy the following experiences.

Get to the Cable Beach Sunset Bar early for front row seat. Drinks at the Sunset Bar is an iconic sunset event. Hopefully, you can time it right like we did, with a live acoustic jam session.

2. Sunset 4WD on the beach

There is a section of Cable Beach that allows 4WDs. It’s down where the camels roam, so take care, and watch out for kids running around.

Pack a picnic, a fishing rod, and a bottle of wine and enjoy this magical event. Don’t go too far north (or maybe do) as it’s a nudist beach!

3. Enjoy a sunset camel ride
