About Broome and the Kimberley Region

With a rich history and extraordinary natural landscape, Broome is synonymous with the turquoise waters, red pindan soil and white sandy beaches that have draw visitors from across the globe. You can sail, snorkel, or dive in their pristine waters, spot rare dolphins from their wide empty beaches, or adventure through the nearby ancient gorges to marvel at the vast untouched landscapes that make Broome truly unique.

However, there’s a lot more to Broome than just tourism – with strong population growth and significant investment in infrastructure, it’s quickly becoming a destination of choice for families and individuals who want to take advantage of the area’s welcoming and laid-back lifestyle whilst enjoying all of the amenities and facilities of a modern town.

The Kimberley region is located in the northern part of Western Australia and covers an area three times larger than England. Despite its size, it has only three main towns (Broome, Derby and Kununurra) and a total population of less than 40,000. Access to much of the region is by dirt road, air, or sea, but despite this isolation, visitors come from around the world to see some of the most stunning landscapes Australia has to offer, with majestic canyons, dramatic waterfalls and ancient cave systems, as well as some of the world’s most beautiful beaches and unique marine life.
