Located between the desert and sea on Western Australia's north-west Coast. Accommodation at Oaks Broome is perfectly placed to offer enjoyment of Australia's pearl industry capital and a naturally beautiful holiday location.
Broome, referred to as the ‘Pearling Capital of Australia’, is one of Australia’s most remote towns and fringes over one million miles of arid outback in the north west corner of Australia’s largest state: Western Australia. Renowned as the gateway to the breathtaking Kimberley and Pilbara regions, Broome offers a uniquely Australian holiday destination and is an unrivalled location to combine business with leisure for meetings, events and conferences, or relaxing and enjoying the abundant natural attractions on offer. Travellers to Broome will also discover an endless array of adventure pursuits with world class fishing and four wheel driving options available year round.
Just over 2200 kilometres north of Perth (two hours flying time), Broome holds an enviable peninsula position, with water flanking both sides, and is an idyllic haven for visitors who are eager to experience the Australian Outback without foregoing the rugged beauty of its coastline.
Cable Beach is the most famous of all local attractions; its raw beauty and spectacular sunsets regularly win accolades as Australia’s best. Named after the underwater telegraph cable that was installed in 1889 linking Broome with Asia, Cable Beach is simply breathtaking with over 22 kilometres of shimmering white sands framed by jagged ochre cliffs and vivid turquoise waters.
Twilight is an ideal time to enjoy a cocktail at the west facing Sunset Bar or take a famed trip on the back of a camel; one of Broome’s most iconic experiences. Another natural phenomena that also attracts visitors to nearby Roebuck Bay is the beguiling ‘staircase to the moon’, appearing at certain times of the year. For an ideal vantage point, Matso’s Brewery – Broome’s very own microbrewery – serves up cold beer (including chilli and mango varieties) for eager staircase spotters.
Broome is a town of spectacular contrasts with friendly local characters and unique charms, but its history is equally mesmerising as Broome is also known as ‘the town built on the back of buttons’, thanks to a rich pearling past led by the region’s ability to grow some of the biggest oysters in the world.
Pearling still underpins a majority of Broome’s most popular local attractions and visitors can take a step back in time during the interactive Pearl Luggers Tour, where some of the best-preserved exhibits from days gone by are on display, or learn about the new age pearling trade at Willie Creek Pearl Farm. And for those that really want to go back in history, Sun Cinemas – the world’s oldest operating picture garden – will surely delight.
Broome is a year round destination with no real summer or winter, instead characterised by ‘the wet’ and ‘the dry’ seasons. The dry season is the most popular time to visit with warm days, balmy nights, clear blue skies and little rain, extending from April/May through to September/October. The ‘wet’ is equally spectacular but travellers should expect very hot days, isolated thunderstorms and torrential downpours.
For accommodation in Broome we have two luxurious options to choose from: Oaks Broome and Oaks Cable Beach Resort.

Willie Creek Pearl Farm
Situated 38 km north of Broome, off Cape Leveque Rd is the Willie Creek Pearl Farm. You can see a working Pearl Farm and the managers will demonstrate the delicate process of cultured pearling, including live oyster seeding.
This scenic spot is located just 6 km from town and is spectacular with red cliffs and turquioise water. When the tides are less than 1.5 meter, if you look carefully in the sandstone at the water's edge you can see petrified dinosaur footprints that are over 130 million years old
Cable beach is the perfect place to enjoy a popular tourist attraction of Broome, camel riding. It offers a sense of adventure and is magnificent way to watch the sunset over the ocean.
