Natural Wonders

Broome and the wider Kimberley region is a wonderland of natural adventures and opportunities to explore. Our experienced Tour Desk Team are available to help you plan your next adventure.

Cable Beach is famous for its pristine white sand and crystal clear water, making it one of Australia’s most spectacular beaches. Part of its charm is the many ways you can explore the beach; whether you’re looking to hire a sunbed and umbrella to perch up for the day, exploring the incredible rock formations, driving a 4WD straight onto the beach for sunset or riding on a camel in the popular Sunset Camel Tours, Cable Beach is a must-do and only a short walk from the Resort.

An hour’s beach walk from the Resort and at the tip of Cable Beach, you will find Gantheaume Point. The beauty of the pure blue water brushing up against the deep red of the cliff face with views of the entire bay are breathtaking. Budding palaeontologists will be excited by the dinosaur footprints which can be seen on the north side at low tides and thought to be 130 million years old. We also recommend exploring the many rock pools you’ll find on the point including Anastasia’s Pool.

Set sail along the shoreline of Cable Beach as you experience panoramic views of the famous Broome sunset and see the kaleidoscope of colours from the ocean. Cruise on a catamaran or embark on a historical venture aboard a pearl lugger with a glass of sparkling and canapes in hand.

Roebuck Bay has many visitor attractions, including the town of Broome and Town Beach. The colours created by the tides are astounding. On low tide, the waters disappear to reveal a horizon of mud flats.

Staircase to the Moon is a natural phenomenon which occurs when a full moon rises over the exposed tidal flats of Roebuck Bay, creating an illusion. It can be seen for three nights each month, between March and October.

Described by David Attenborough as “one of the greatest wonders of the natural world”, Horizontal Falls are a must for thrill-seeking tourists which can be experienced by boat or an incredible sight from the air. Situated at Talbot Bay within the Buccaneer Archipelago, this natural phenomenon is formed by the huge tidal movements of up to 10 metres being forced through two narrow gorges. The water builds up on one side of the gap faster than it can flow through, creating a waterfall. With each change of the tide, the direction of the falls reverse from inflow to outflow.

Coconut Well is 25kms from Broome and only accessible by 4WD. The main attraction is the lagoon that fills during a high tide, making for some great drift snorkelling and is one of the best kept secrets in Broome.

Known by the local Indigenous as ‘Ardi’, which means ‘heading north’, the Dampier Peninsula is known for its striking natural landscape which includes wide stretches of secluded and pristine beach. Fish, mud crab or learn about the rich culture and history that surrounds the Dampier Peninsula.

Buccaneer Archipelago is a group of approximately 800 beautifully rugged islands with secluded beaches, crystal clear waters and lush rainforest. Located north of Broome you can experience the stunning scenery by light aircraft or explore the pearl farms and mangroves that fringe the beaches by boat.

There’s a lot of astonishing land to cover around here and one of the best ways to do it, if you really want to get close to the land, is with a 4WD tour.

Many Japanese migrants settled in Broome during the town’s productive pearling industry boom and many of them died as a result. As the largest Japanese Cemetery in Australia, it dates back to 1896. There are over 700 graves, each with a unique headstone crafted from coloured beach rocks. The cemetery is a moving tribute to the lives lost in the early pearling days.
