Nmaes of wicked clubs and DJ's in Broome

Re: Clubs

by Purpleshade

Broome is a quiet little place, I doubt if any 'wicked' clubs exist there. There's a large pub in the town centre which has music and DJs, and events such as 'wet t-shirt contests'.
The bigger hotels will have bars.

Travel Tips for Broome

Hire a Satellite Phone

by Lildeer

If you are really going far afield, or venturing out in the Wet, consider renting a satellite phone. With limited fuel and supplies in this region, it could be a handy insurance policy to cover the unexpected.

Rates start at about $21/day for short term, less expensive for longer rental periods. Shipping is available.

Dampier Penninsula Drive to Camp Leveque

by Lildeer

At the top of Dampier Penninsula, Cape Leveque is postcard picture perfect with azure seas, red cliffs and white sand. It is about a 3 hour drive from Broome in the Dry season (in the Wet season, I'd advise flying). Explore the beach (driveable if you air down to 18 psi, air is available) and capture the magical light at sunset on the red cliffs.

Take Cape Leveque Rd all the way, 220 km north of Broome, 90km of which is unpaved and sandy so you will need a 4WD. Air your tyres down to 22psi for a smoother ride. It is quite a haul for a day trip, so make a weekend of it.

Accommodations: You can stay at Kooljaman Resort (a bit crowded and you will need advance reservations) in a raised safari tent, cabin, beach hut, or shady patch of dirt. They have a restaurant onsite for those who only want the appearance of roughin it, coffee costs $6. The lowest accommodation rate is $16 per person for an unpowered campsite, beach huts are $60/night. www.kooljaman.com.au

Middle Lagoon is much less crowded, has similiar facilities (minus the restaurant), and is an hour south on the way back to Broome. Get up early (before 8am) to see sting rays feeding in the shallows. Sunrise is the best time for pictures. www.middlelagoon.com.au

Both of these locations have great whale watching June to October.

Cygnet Bay Pearls

by Lildeer

A working pearl farm since the 60's, this is not your commercial Willie's Creek tourist attraction. If you are driving to Cape Leveque (3 hours north), it is worth the side trip. If you are interested in buying pearls direct from the farm (both cultured and seedless), this is definitely the place.

Directions: 2.5 hours on Cape Leveque Rd, 8km past Kooljaman Resort turn off, on right. It is well posted. Go down a 4km red dirt road and an absolute oasis will greet you at the dead-end. 4WD is recommendated, though if you've gotten this far up the penninsula, you are probably in one already.

Visit the gallery, cafe, take a sunset trip on their boat, and/or stay in newly renovated accommodations. Of course, they also have pearls for sale! Pick out beautiful ones already set, or noodle through the stack to find your own matching pair. They can direct you to a Broome jeweler for custom setting (about $200).

A charming way to spend a couple of hours!

Willie Creek Pearl Farm Tour

by gaizee

We were collected from our hotel by our tour operator in an air-conditioned bus, on our trip out to Willie Creek Pearl Farm the driver pointed out items of interest. On arrival at the farm we were escorted into a small showroom which is where they displayed pearl jewellery, beautiful pearl strands, pendants, earrings in both Australian South Sea Pearls and Freshwater pearls from China.
We then were given a 20 minute very informative talk on the culturing process of South Sea Pearls, explaining to us the reasons why the pearls grown along the coast line between Broome in Western Australia and Darwin in the Northern Territory are classed as the best pearls in the World.
After which morning tea was offered with Damper ( an old traditional flour bread) before our boat trip, to point out, the pearl lines in the estuary, also was very informative.
We really enjoyed this tour very much and found the staff very friendly and informative about their industry. I would reccomend this tour to every visitor to Broome. The cost A$78 per person.
You will also be able to view pearls from the Willie Creek Pearl Farm in their showrooms at Chinatown and Cable Beach.

Camel Riding on Cable Beach

by skatzcatz

riding a camel along cable beach as the sun sets is one of the must do attractions in Broome, if not Western Australia and then again if not in Australia. A memorable experience with fantastic vista's.
