Sunset Camel Ride
A sunset camel ride along Cable Beach is one of Broome’s most popular tourist experiences, and definitely one to enjoy during any Broome to Broome tours.

Broome Historical Museum
Set in a former 1890’s general store, the Broome Historical Museum offers visitors the opportunity to learn about the local history and cultural heritage. Tourists will gain knowledge about Broome’s pearling history, shipwrecks, Aboriginal artefacts and the air raid attacks during World War 2. The Broome Historical Society and Museum have been preserving the history and heritage of Broome for more than 40 years. The museum is run by dedicated volunteers and has a collection which spans across three buildings.
The Sun Pictures Cinema
Sun Pictures Cinema is another extremely popular attraction in Broome. It not only attracts tourists, but many locals enjoy relaxing under the stars to see the latest film. The Sun Pictures Cinema is the world’s oldest picture garden still in operation. Located in Chinatown, multiple films are screened per night. The first movie was shown at Sun Pictures in 1906 and has continued until today.
Horizontal Falls Adventure
One of the most amazing natural attractions included in many Kimberley tours. The Horizontal Falls is located at Talbot Bay and is an amazing demonstration of the powerful Kimberley tides. The Horizontal Falls is created by massive tidal movements through two narrow gorges. As the water banks up against the narrow gap it creates a horizontal waterfall as the water rushes through. This process is repeated in reverse on the returning tide. The Horizontal Falls tours can be appreciated from air, or for the more adventurous, on an adrenalin fuelled speed boat ride through the narrow gorges.
Willie Creek Pearl Farm
Willie Creek Pearl Farm is located on the spectacular tidal estuary of Willie Creek about 38km from Broome. Tourists can visit the farm to see how the most valuable pearls in the world are made and learn about cultured Pearl Farming processes. Not only is the Pearl Farm worth a visit, the surrounds are breathtaking with pristine waters and mangrove lined banks which is home to an abundance of wildlife, including salt water crocodiles!
Broome is a town unlike anywhere else in the world and a great central point for many exciting Kimberley tours. Tours from Broome are a great way to experience the above attractions along with so many more. Broome is a unique and adventurous place to soak up the pristine beaches, local culture, abundant wildlife, breathtaking colours and a warm tropical climate.
