Popular Broome Tours - October to March

  • Posted by on 9 October 2018

The busy Kimberley tourist season is winding down as many travellers head south for a milder climate after enjoying months of warm, Kimberley sunshine over the winter.  

It is true that the Kimberley starts heading into the very warm and more humid summer months and inland travel is not recommended due to the heat, high humidity and possible early wet season storms. Consequently many tour operators who convey travellers to more remote locations, reduce or close operations and give staff a break.

Because of the ocean influences, Broome has a much milder summer season than inland. Sure, it gets humid and from late November to March there will be rains, but Broome’s rain usually arrives in short, heavy falls, rather than days of drizzle. The sunsets from Cable Beach following an afternoon thunderstorm are stunning and an early morning or late afternoon walk on Cable Beach is a must!
