Cable Beach

Broome, Western Australia

Things to do


One of WA’s most renowned beaches, the pristine white sands and turquoise waters of Cable Beach are located directly opposite the park. From May-October each year, the Staircase to the Moon can be seen from Roebuck Bay, located only a short drive from the property.


Broome offers a wide variety of dining options, walk across the road for a casual meal at Divers Tavern or treat yourself to beachfront dining at the Sunset bar or Zanders on the Beach. Visit China town and immerse yourself in Brome’s vast history, while you enjoy authentically Chinese, Japanese and Thai cuisine.


Stroll along Broome Boulevard or visit China town. Broome Boulevard is located between Cable Beach and China Town and houses all your shopping necessities. Browse local boutiques in China Town or shop for some of the world’s most stunning pearls, the ultimate Broome Souvenir.


With a range of spectacular unique experiences on offer from award-winning tour providers, a trip to Broome isn’t complete without venturing out to discover the region with a local guide. Ride camels at sunset on Cable Beach, take a hovercraft tour of Roebuck Bay, soak in Broome’s history on a pearl farm tour or kayak along the Dampier Peninsular. For the adventurous, boat through the world-renowned Horizontal Falls or take a scenic flight over the breathtaking coastline.

Sun Picture Cinema

Watch a movie in the oldest working open-air cinema in the world! Heritage-listed Sun Pictures has been featured in the box office hit Australia, starring Nicole Kidman and Hugh Jackman. Sun Pictures screens the latest Hollywood blockbusters, as well as a range of small screen productions. Please note the box office and kiosk are cash only.

Staircase to the Moon

From March to October, the light from each full moon turns the mudflats of Roebuck Bay into a set of gleaming stairs that rise into the night’s sky. There are several places from which to see this natural phenomenon, but we suggest taking in the spectacle from the Mangrove Hotel, where the magical sound of digeridoo resonates as the moon rises.
