It should come as no surprise that the first natural wonder on our list is Cable Beach. Renowned for the beach’s pristine white sand and glorious crystal clear water, it’s the perfect spot to relax on a sunbed, enjoy a dip in the ocean or spend a romantic evening watching the sunset. With our resort only a short walk away from this iconic beach, when you stay at Cable Beach Club you’ll feel as though you have your own private shore.
Walk in the steps of dinosaurs at one of the world’s most renowned paleontological sites—Gantheaume Point. Dating back to over 125 million years ago, when the tide is low, you can spot dinosaur footprints on the preserved reef rock. Located beside the beauty of Broome’s pure blue water and visionary red rock, this is an essential visit to include on your Aussie bucket list.
Stretching from Broome down to Bush Point and Sandy Point, Roebuck Bay is one of Broome’s most beautiful natural attractions. If you’re visiting in March to late October, you can witness the dreamy Staircase to the Moon. This is when a full moon rises over the exposed tidal flats of Roebuck Bay, creating a glorious moonlit staircase.
A place like no other with the striking contrast of pindan cliffs, white sand beaches and clear turquoise waters—creating a visionary backdrop to your holiday adventures. Accessed via Cape Leveque Road, the terrain is a sealed all-weather road but a high clearance 4WD will have more route choices you’ll find on your travels.
There’s something spectacular about seeing a crocodile in-person. With their mighty-jaws and their eerie reptilian appearance, you will want to make sure you get a front row ticket to the daily feeding tour showcasing some of the largest crocodiles in Australia.

Bring in your catch to Cable Beach Club and our chefs will prepare your delicacy for you to enjoy for dinner.
