Broome and The Kimberley

an experience of country and coast

Broome is one the all time best places to visit. It is the most remote town in relation to any capital city in THE WORLD! It also has the best restaurants considering its remote location. Wildlife just strolls around the place.
 
We stayed at Cable Beach and a 5 foot (at least!) monitor lizard just mozied on past the pool while holiday makers scrambled for safety or their cameras. My camera was too far away - so I failed to capture the moment on film.
 
Broome also offers a wide variety of adventures, from flying in a Cessna across a beautiful landscape, to going charter fishing where fish practically leap into the boat.
 
Watch out for the Irikanji stingers - the water may be warmer than a bath, but those stingers provide a feeling of impending doom that does not compliment a holiday!
