Broome Cyclone Season: What You Need to Know

  • Posted by on 11 January 2018

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.
