Guide to Broome
Located on the land of the Yawuru people, Broome was first settled by Europeans in the 19th Century as a centre for the pearling industry (based out of Roebuck Bay), and in the 1960s benefitted by the West Australian mining boom. Several dinosaur footprints from the Cretaceous era have been discovered here and it’s a gorgeous gateway to the Kimberley region, with a relaxed ambience, pleasant temperatures and tropical palms swaying in the gentle breeze.
