Broome is situated in north Western Australia, a two and a half hour flight from Perth. The surrounding region is full of colour, culture and captivating scenery. Fiery red ochre cliffs contrast with the unspoilt turquoise waters of the Indian Ocean, dinosaur footprints tell secrets of ancient days and a multi-cultural population provide arts, performances and irresistible cuisine.
The pearling industry has been an important part of the region's economy. Many places and shops offer visitors to get a closer insight into the pearl trade and the jewelry craft.
