Gantheaume Point

At Gantheaume Point you can view dinosaur footprints at low tides: they are believed to be more that 130 million years old. Here you can also witness the vivid red sandstone cliffs spilling into the sea. Relax in Anastasia’s Pool – a natural sea bath, modified by a former lighthouse keeper, to make it easy for his wife, Anastasia, to access. Anastasia suffered badly from arthritis and found relief in the warm water of the Indian Ocean which filled the pool at high tide. The man-made structure has been largely destroyed by a storm in 2014, but the romantic story keeps touching the hearts of locals and visitors alike.

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.
