Where

Once the pearl capital of the world, Broome is now a booming tourist town in the south of the spectacular Kimberley region. The seemingly endless white sands and turquoise seas of Cable Beach, where tourists ride camels into the sunset, are one of the town’s top attractions. Other highlights include the Broome Historical Museum, the Broome Crocodile Park and the Staircase to the Moon, a phenomenon during certain conditions between March and October where moonlight creates an optical illusion of steps leading to the moon. Broome is also a great base for excursions into the Kimberley region where visitors can explore the Horizontal Waterfall, Cape Leveque, Gibb River Road, Purnululu (Bungle Bungle) National Park and the stunning cascades of Mitchell Falls.

Cable Beach is a 22 km (14 mi) stretch of white sand beach on the eastern Indian Ocean about 6 km (3.7 mi) west of Broome, Western Australia. Cable Beach was named after the telegraph cable laid between Broome and Java in 1889. Low cliffs of red ochre rise behind the very flat and wide beach, with waves that are mostly gentle in the dry season from May to October

Box jellyfish, also known as stingers, may be present between November and April. Warning signs are posted on the beach and stingers may be present outside the normal wet season months. A camel train on the beach, Camel rides are offered around sunrise and sunset hours on the northern parts of the beach just past a rocky section. Four-wheel drive vehicles are permitted north of the rocks, as well as clothing-optional sunbathing and swimming
