Getting to Cairns

by carostev

We are travelling to Australia in December 2007, flying into Perth. We will drive to Broome from Perth but then would like to get to Cairns from Broome. We are finding it impossible to get a flight and cannot find any other means of transport between Broome and Cairns. We don't really want to drive from Broome to Cairns.
Can you please make some suggestions?

Many thanks

Check with www.virginblue.com.au as they have flights out of Broome via Perth or Darwin back to Brisbane then on to Cairns. Depends on your budget. Bus to Darwin then fly out to cairns ? or bus it across to the east coast ? Depends on your time frame.
If you do end up driving check this website first for any deals on campervan return deals http://www.standbycars.com.au/oneways.aspx?cid=1

Re: Getting to Cairns

I would STRONGLY advise you dont drive from Broome to Cairns. That time of year is the wet season up there in the Kimberley and the roads have a tendancy to "flash flood"! you will also find that because it is the wet season flghts going in and out or Broome will be minimal. Its also VERY hot and humid!

If you want to fly you are going to have to do 2 different flights im pretty sure both Virgin and Qantas offer these also look at Skywest.....Broome-Darwin-Cairns, Broome-Brisbane-Cairns, Broome-Alice Springs-Cairns.

There is a Greyhound bus that goes from Broome to Darwin..you could catch that then fly to Cairns From Darwin...but its a long drive and probably cheaper to catch a plane!

Airnorth and Skywest fly Broome/Darwin, and Qantas flies Darwin/Cairns. December is still pretty okay as far as the wet season goes. Roads generally aren't affected until January/February, if then.

Travel Tips for Broome

Polarizers

by Lildeer

A polarized filter (usually called a circular polarizer) on your camera lens will help boost color saturation, important when taking monochromatic pictures like blue sky above blue sea, and will also help to capture vibrant bright colours (like all those beautiful red cliffs) so that your prints will match your memory. Polarizers are particularly important in sunny conditions when colour washout is more likely to occur. So be like the cool kids at National Geographic and get yourself a circular polarizer filter on your lens. They are durable and inexpensive (about $10), available from any photo supply store. Polarized sunglasses help you to see through water that would otherwise reflect like a mirror. For instance, while boating/canoeing/beach walking, polarized sunglasses will help you see creatures in the water. I was able to see rays dart along the bottom (they look like dark shadows) while my buddy (regular sunglasses) missed out. Don't let it be you! Polarized sunglasses are usually clearly labelled and cost anywhere from $20-$150+ depending on the style and brand.

Dinasaur Footprints.

by kid-keith

About half way up the coast line heading towards the main Jetty in Broome you can turn down a road and head for a lighthouse, down by the lighthouse to yhe left on low tide you can see Dinasaur footprints on the rocks in the sea not many people can find them or even know anout but thay are there just make sure you go when it`s low tide and look look for to big rocks these are the 2 that have the footprints.

One Arm Point Aquaculture Hatchery

by Lildeer

A remote aboriginal community, One Arm Point is a 3 hour drive from Broome on Cape Leveque Rd. While you're taking in the incredible scenery, visit the Aquaculture Hatchery, an unexpected gem in a remote location.

The hatchery features about 12 small pools filled with marine life from around the area including clown fish, lion fish, barramundi, blue ringed octopi, and a giant sea snail. Scratch a green turtle's shell (they will follow you around the tank to get one), feed a 40kg barramundi (they actually create a vacuum to suck the fish from your fingers with a POP!), and pet a barrmundi cod. They also have a touch tank for kids with sea urchins, anemones, clams, and soft coral. You can walk around by yourself, we just happened to catch a tour at 10am (there were 5 of us), but call ahead to inquire.

This is also where they breed trachus, which only the local peoples are allowed to gather (to the tune of 15 billion tonnes per year). The shells are exported to Italy where they are polished and made into mother-of-pearl buttons, or put into car paint to add sparkle.

$5 town visitor fee plus $5 to visit the hatchery, all of which goes to local projects. Tickets for both are available at the hatchery, which is well-posted as soon as you enter the community.

Courthouse Markets, Saturday and Sunday morning.

by Purpleshade

Tourist markets full of delightful trinkets set among large shady trees.
Lots of pearls and other jewellry, paintings and local craftwork.
I bought these lovely sterling silver and paula shell earings and a beautiful tiny fluorite angel.
Look out for the veggie stall near the entrance that sells frozen mango slices in plastic bags-you eat them like an ice lolly (icy-pole, popsicle). Wonderful on a stinking hot day!

The Jetty.

by kid-keith

Broome is home for a large jetty which is lovely to walk down with plenty of tourist intrest, occasionally a very large cruisr liner comes to dock (2nd biggest in the world) which is well worth getting your camara out.
