Loads of things to do in Broome in the wet season

Looking for great value Broome activities for $110 or less? There are still so many things to do in Broome in the wet season.

Yes, it’s pretty warm at that time of year, but it’s a great opportunity to see the Kimberley when it’s green. The frangipani trees are blooming and the poinciana trees are flaming up the streets. The colours of the wet season with the build-up of clouds can turn a stand and shoot photo into the spectacular!

There are also great deals on flights and accommodation for wet season travellers.

So now you have planned this holiday and you have finally arrived. Don’t count the number of days left, make the days count with one or all of the activities listed below.

Keen to get into the local Broome attractions?

Book a Snubfin Dolphin Cruise – If you have never seen a snubfin dolphin and you are wanting some fantastic friendly customer service, book an eco-cruise with us at Broome Whale Watching. For only $105 per person, you can enjoy a relaxing, informative 3+ hour cruise through Roebuck Bay. Meet our friendly locals, the snubfin dolphins and spot some turtles cruising by.

Needing some extra relaxation to help you slip into Broome time?

Enjoy a facial – Bali Hai Day Spa is one of my favourite places to go when I seriously need to unplug and slip into relax mode. Their $85 Pearl facial is a half hour of total rejuvenation which comes in 3 ways. And yes!

What’s on offer?

  • Sink into their plunge pool afterwards
  • Sip on complimentary herbal tea and yummy nibbles

Practise Yoga – The Buddhist Sanctuary at Cable Beach is a different place to be still and let go. I have always loved the idea of Yoga and did a little practice years ago. After 10 years of living here I finally popped into the sanctuary for a private practice under the 3 metre tall crystal Buddha statue. The early evening breeze was just splendid and the location heavenly. Couldn’t help but feel like I had to commit to the whole time with Big Buddha watching me. This community space is open to the public 7 days a week. https://bluebody.com.au/locations/buddha-sanctuary/

What’s on offer?

  • 60 minute class for $15
  • 90 minute class for $20
  • Free community place to do a private practice. Simply come on in for free and enjoy the beautiful gardens and serenity. No chilled towels available here, so pack your own just in case you need it.

Wanting to escape some of the warmth and needing some air conditioning experiences?

Walk down memory lane – Broome Museum is a very cool place to hang in air con. It’s a great way to learn all about Broome’s history and its pearling days. For a very small entry fee of $12 per adult and free entry for children under 16 years of age, you could spend hours scrolling through photographs and artefacts. There are also some fantastic short Broome films to watch. Keep a look out for some insane photos of men on crocodiles. Crazy about seashells as I am? Don’t forget to check out McDaniel Shell Collection, an impressive range of sea treasures.

Opening hours vary between seasons.

Marking a little dot on the Aussie map, Broome is packed with so many stories. The Broome Museum is worth a visit any time of year.

Coffee and Pastries: Yummo – The Zookeepers Store in Cable Beach is a great stop over for a good cold brew coffee in comfy aircon. Outdoor seating options are also available. These guys are mad about their micrology coffee and baking. I can’t go past their delicious almond croissant or their famous cronuts, different flavours baked every day! Holiday calories don’t count right? So, what are you waiting for? Check out The Zookeepers Store website for their scrumptious menu.

Open every morning in the wet season.

FREE things to do for the traveller on a budget.

  • Time for some Vitamin Sea? Take an early morning stroll along the famous Cable Beach.
  • If dinosaurs rock your world, on the right tide, head down to Gantheaume Point, the southern end of Cable Beach and search for their footprints. Or, head up towards the lighthouse and check out the story boards that are under shade. They have some great facts about all sorts of flora and fauna and a little about the Yawuru people of this region.
  • The lighthouse is also a great place to sit back, unwind and soak in the Broome sunset. The rugged rocks at Gantheaume Point burst with the stunning Kimberley colours at sunset. Pack a chilled bottle of wine to enjoy as you watch the sun set over the Indian Ocean.
  • Order yourself a coffee from the Town Beach Café overlooking Roebuck Bay and let the kids have a splash at the water park. Closed Tuesday.
  • Jetty to Jetty Trail is another great self-guided heritage walk along the foreshore of Roebuck Bay. Download the app and scoot along in the early coolness of the morning.

There is so much fun to be had any time of year! Don’t forget to pack your camera and tripod. The lightning storms are so impressive each wet season!
