- Tour Highlights
This attraction stands as a reminder of Broome’s history with a mixture of both colonial and Asian architecture. Whilst here explore what was once an area filled with numerous pearl sheds, billiard saloons, entertainment houses and Chinese eateries.
This building is known as one of the world’s oldest operating picture gardens constructed at the turn of the century. In 1913 this building, originally an Asian emporium selling imported Asian foodstuff, clothing and other household goods; was turned into a picture theatre that would seat up to 500 people.
Matso Brewery Tasting
An award winning microbrewery recognised as a true Broome treasure. Whilst here indulge in a beer tasting and be sure to try Matso’s famous ginger beer!
This cemetery can be traced back to the early twentieth century and highlights the close ties Japan established with Broome and its pearling industry. This attraction is filled with numerous headstones in honour of the hundreds of young Japanese divers who died whilst diving for pearls.
The Port of Broome is known as the largest deep-water access port servicing the Kimberley region. The port supports the export of livestock, offshore oil and gas operations, pearling, fishing, charter boats and cruise lines.
A stretch of white sandy beach overlooking the blue waters of the Indian Ocean most commonly known for it’s red rock cliff face, dinosaur footprints and Anastasias Pool.
Cable beach is the Kimberley regions most spectacular strip of golden sand, world renowned as a popular destination for many to watch the beautiful sun set over the sparkling ocean.
Beginning in Chinatown with fascinating stories of this multi-cultural precinct, we visit Sun Pictures, the world’s oldest operating picture gardens. Next it’s on to the Cygnet Bay Pearl Farm Town Experience to hear all about the history of pearling in Broome, before heading through Old Broome and past the old Pearling Masters’ homes. At Town Beach, learn of Broome’s One Day War then stop at Matso’s Brewery to taste their hand made ales and famous ginger beer or visit one of the local arts & craft galleries nearby. Then visit the Japanese Cemetery and Broome Port before arriving at Gantheaume Point, known for dinosaur footprints and Anastasias Pool.
We then head down to Cable Beach for a quick dip or alternatively, take a wander along the beautiful golden sands and enjoy the scenery. As the sun sets over the water, enjoy some light refreshments and nibbles and watch the sun sink slowly under the horizon.
