Roebuck Bay presents one of the most watchable, relaxing views you'll find anywhere. I was fortunate over my 5 days in Broome to experience Roebuck Bay under lots of different conditions / times, and I'd highly recommend if you can, that you do the same. Dusk / sunset, Staircase to the Moon, overcast, first thing in the morning on a... More

I initially dismissed Roebuck Bay as an area to stay in Broome, opting for Cable Beach area instead. However, when I saw how breathtakingly beautiful the bay was and how impossibly blue the water is - I regretted my decision. If anyone was to ask me where to stay in Broome, I would say definitely somewhere that is overlooking Roebuck... More

Go on any of the many cruises on offer, but focus on the SNUBFIN DOLPHINS. Only identified as a species in 2005, they are rare but cute as, and frolic around the boat. You will see turtles, sea eagles and other marine birds, the occasional bottlenose dolphin (yawn), flying fish, and see Broome landscape as William Dampier saw it in... More

More shorebirds stop off here on their migration than anywhere else in Australia so it's a great spot to see them and if you combine with the Broome Bird Observatory then you can hire a guide and learn a lot.

Great beach for photography, watching the sunset, fossicking amongst the rocks, having a quick dip in the water, fishing, walking, sun bathing or just sightseeing.
