The remote, culturally rich and incredibly scenic town of Broome is one of Australia’s favourite holiday destinations. The clear turquoise water and expansive white beaches will beckon you in for a dip, and the rugged landscape of the Kimberley’s will excite your inner explorer. Be prepared to return from your holiday relaxed!
When is the best time to visit Broome?
Want to avoid the hordes of tourists escaping their winter? To beat the crowds for your piece of secluded beach we suggest you book your getaway in May OR September. Peak season is May to September where temperatures average a balmy 30C, so come early or just after the crowds. Weather Warning: Storms and cyclones can ravage the coast during the wet season from late September to early May. Flight and hotel prices are generally lower during wet season, but bear in mind some attractions shut early. The tourist season reaches its peak in July, although if you ask a local they would consider it way too cold to dust off their bikini and hit the water!
