Boat Wrecks

For everyone interested in war relics, in extremely low tides you can see the Dutch Flying Boat wrecks in Roebuck Bay. These airplanes were bombed by the Japanese in 1942. Start your walk across the mudflats from Town Beach about an hour before low tide and head southeast. The walk should take you about 30 minutes. Make sure to wear footwear to protect your feet from sharp shells and other sea creatures.

Do & See

Broome is the gateway to the spectacular Kimberley Region, one of the world’s last frontiers. The town is surrounded by unspoilt wilderness of rugged gorges, waterfalls and aboriginal rock art — a special place for the native peoples of the area, who comprise approximately 40 percent of the population and represent more than 30 language groups.
