During the many years living in Broome, we cannot recall having 2 cyclones pass by within two weeks of each other. Whilst the memory fades with age, we can recall some the more memorable ones and near misses, or the 'big one' Cyclone Rosita in 2000, which was at the end of a very good wet season. We have seen dozens of them pass close by without much effect on the town other some welcome, soaking rains and a few leaves and small branches down around the gardens.
From 1 January 2018, if you are planning to visit the Mitchell Plateau in the far north west of the Kimberley, each traveller will now need an Uunguu Visitor Pass (UVP).

Broome has been known for the quality of the pearls it has produced for decades. Broome pearls are highly sought after due to their quality. The late Princess Diana was one who embraced pearls and she was often photographed wearing jewellery that included these wonders of the sea. Take a minute to Google’ images of her wearing a stunning array of jewellery featuring pearls.
