Set against the red pindan and just a stone's throw from Cable Beach, the Broome Turf Club is uniquely Broome and the perfect backdrop to a day at the races.
An annual highlight up North, the Broome races attract an array of punters from cattle station workers enjoying a day in the big smoke, to town locals adorned in their pearls and ready to pick a winner.
Going away for a holiday is one of the best parts of summer, no matter where you choose to travel. We all want to remember our travels, and taking some great photos is one of the best ways to keep the memory alive.
Sometimes those gorgeous views just don’t translate to the memory card quite as well as you had hoped, especially if you have no instruction from a professional. Photography doesn’t have to be challenging, and you can have gorgeous vacation photos no matter how little experience you have in photography.
Book and enjoy a half day Willie Creek Pearl Farm tour between 16 Feb 14 and 28 Feb 15 and receive a FREE 1 hour guided Pearl Lugger Museum tour.
Broome is sometimes perceived as an expensive destination. Let’s face it, it’s a really remote spot, but once you get to know the town, you’ll find there’s plenty to do that doesn’t break the bank.
The Kimberley is one of the most unique destinations on earth, with landscapes that have been millions of years in the making. Comprising an area of more than 400,000 sq km and with a population of less than 40,000 one of the best ways (and sometimes the only way) to explore this remote outback area is on board a small group cruise. A Kimberley cruise lets you experience the astounding scenic coastline and diverse landscapes; from the pristine beaches to ancient gorge country, and the world-famous horizontal waterfalls.
The end of November is much looked forward to each year in the Kimberley, and in particular in Broome, when the Broome Lion's Club present their annual Mango Festival.
Christmas is looming - and now only 64 days away!
Do you have parents, relatives or friends travelling in the Kimberley in 2015 and you are wondering what to buy them for Christmas? Need something a 'bit different'?
While you are planning your travels in the Kimberley in 2015, we recommend that you book tours ahead rather than wait until you arrive at your destination. There are a couple of reasons for this. If you are travelling and have limited time to spend in a destination, you may well be disappointed that the tour you wish to experience is fully booked when you get there and you miss out - and from our experience this does happen when we try to get seats on tours where passengers have left it till the 'last minute'. By booking early, it assists the \tour operators in planning their operations, staffing levels and departures during the busy tourist months - particularly between May - August/early September.
I think we can all agree that the next best thing to being on holiday is planning your next big adventure right?
