Join us for a “gem” of a holiday in Broome, the “Pearl of the North. Explore this vibrant multicultural town, learn its interesting frontier history and take in the incredible beauty of the natural wonders of Western Australia’s Kimberley region. This will be a relaxing “Unpack Once” Winter escape holiday, where fun and fellowship help to create warm friendships.
Today we fly to Broome, the beautiful “Pearl of the North”.
On arrival we will be met and welcomed by our CFT Tour Leader and Coach Captain from our own sister company, Fantastic Aussie Tours. A short orientation tour through Broome village and then we will arrive at our home for the next 6 nights -the Oaks Cable Beach Resort. Tonight, we gather together for pre dinner fellowship then enjoy our first “getting to know you” or “glad to see you again” dinner.
This morning we join together for worship and to enjoy fellowship with a local congregation.
After church we will drop by the popular Courthouse Markets to browse stalls of local produce and handmade goods and enjoy the buskers and some live music.
Choose your lunch here from one of the many stalls and then spend some time at leisure wandering around the markets. In the afternoon we will travel back in time when we visit the striking rust-red cliffs at Gantheaume Point to look at ancient dinosaur footprints. Rugged eroded cliffs contrast with clear turquoise waters to provide spectacular photographic opportunities. Glory in God’s Creation – this is the life!
Broome is the home of the beautiful South Sea Pearls and their discovery in the 1800s saw Japanese, Filipino and Malay Pearl divers arrive in droves, creating a melting pot of cultures. Immerse yourself in Broome’s multicultural heritage with a visit to the Japanese Cemetery and the Pearling Lugger Museum with a guided tour.
Choose your lunch from one of the many cafes or restaurants in the village of Broome and then in the afternoon we will take in the famous Cable Beach, renowned for its 22 kilometres of white sand and turquoise waters.
You may like to enjoy a camel ride, a quintessential Broome experience (extra cost) – choose from two options, a short 45-minute ride or the 90-minute sunset ride. Alternatively, you can watch the passing parade from one of the beach-bar cafes.

A tour of a local aquaculture hatchery in the One Arm Point Aboriginal Community is followed by a picnic lunch overlooking the impressive Buccaneer Archipelago.
Top off a glorious day with a swim in the clear, tropical water at Kooljaman or simply relax on the pristine beach and take in the spectacular coastline the cape is renowned for.
We return to Broome after a wonderful day filled with unique Kimberley experiences.
A final morning of leisure to enjoy the beauty of Broome; wander around town and shop for last minute souvenirs or simply laze by the pool. We have a treat in store for our last afternoon – a Sunset Cruise on a traditional rigged schooner that is one of Australia’s oldest operating Pearl Luggers. This is whale watching season so keep your eyes out for these incredible creatures as well as other marine life such as dugongs, Snubfin Dolphins, and rays.
