Popular Attractions Along the Way

Malcolm Douglas Crocodile Park

10 miles out of town, Malcolm Douglas Crocodile Park affords a chance to get up close and personal with legendary Australian wildlife: crocs, cassowaries, kangaroos, wallabies, emus, kookaburras, dingoes, snakes, and more.

The park claims some of the largest crocodiles in Australia, representing five species of crocodiles and alligators. Three o’clock is feeding time, a chance to see the agile crocs literally leap for their food.

Cable Beach

Broome’s 13.6 mile long iconic Indian Ocean beach sports dazzling colours: pure white sands, turquoise waters, and tall red cliffs.

Named for the telegraph cable that connected Broome with Java in 1889, Cable Beach is a popular locale for camel riding, and several types of turtles nest here October through February.

At the southern end of Cable Beach, Gantheaume Point allows for viewing of migratory whales and dolphins, along with 130-million-year-old fossil dinosaur footprints.

Gantheaume Point Cliffs

Just ten minutes from Broome’s town centre and adjacent to Western Australia’s famous Cable Beach lies one of the area’s most photographed locales, Gantheaume Point.

Here the desert meets the turquoise waters of the Indian Ocean and red rock cliffs overlook a white sandy beach.
