The multicultural town of Broome is only minutes away from Cable Beach Club Resort & Spa. Founded over a century ago as one of the world’s great pearling ports, it attracted Asian immigrants lured by the promise of finding their fortune. Over the years, Koepanger, Chinese, Japanese, European and Aboriginal cultures blended to create Broome’s unique character and charm.
Broome is world-famous for its magnificent sunsets. The sight of the sun setting over the Indian Ocean and the ever-lengthening shadows and the transformation of crimson to silver as the sun sinks below the horizon is a unique spectacle.
The moon controls Broome’s tides which can reach over 9 metres, revealing the ghostly Stairway to the Moon and occasionally exposing the remains of flying boats sunk in Japanese air attacks during World War II.
But the night brings more than the stars and the moon. Inhale tropical scents from exotic plants in the Resort’s lush gardens, and discover activity from the garden’s tiny inhabitants.
You can still soak up the history of the dangerous days of luggers and divers, but today the focus is on the Broome South Sea Pearl and the arts. You can tour a pearl farm, browse the many world-class pearl jewellery studios and art galleries in Chinatown, see a movie at the world’s oldest outdoor picture gardens, or witness one of Broome’s many visual art, music or sports festivals.
The famous Broome pearls and Argyle’s pink diamonds are among the precious rarities produced in this area - and enduring reminders of a visit to one of the planet’s most exciting locations.
