Experience Broome in Winter

Want to escape the winter blues? There are at least three amazing reasons you'll be entertained this Winter in Broome!

The beautiful northwest town of Broome in Western Australia comes alive over Winter with festivities and events that showcase the culture, history, landscape, diversity and unique talents of the community.

Locals and tourists are invited to take part in the annual Broome Races, Staircase to the Moon and Shinju Matsuri - or the 'Festival of the Pearl'.

And to help you get there, Broome & The Kimberley Holidays have teamed up with Virgin Australia with an exclusive airfare sale.

This year, Broome's nine week racing racing season runs from June until mid August, and includes Ladies Day and the Broome Cup. You'll be able to experience all the excitement of a day at the races - just a stone's throw from famous Cable Beach.

At certain times each month between April to October tourists and locals alike come together in the charismatic town of Broome to experience a fantastic natural phenomena 'Staircase to the moon' caused by a rising full moon reflecting off the exposed mudflats at low tide on Roebuck Bay creating an optical illusion.

Dust off those cameras because this is a holiday experience for those interested in natural phenomena and an opportunity to take home stunning holiday snaps!

From the late 1800's colourful characters from all over the world flocked to the small pearling port of Broome in hope of making their fortune. Shinju Matsuri, which is Japanese for 'festival of the Pearl', is a 10 day celebration of the many different cultures that have existed harmoniously in Broome for over a century.

There is plenty to keep you busy...Watch Sammy the Dragon awaken from his yearlong slumber at The Opening Ceremony, enjoy the colourful procession of floats, vehicles and performers as they pass through the streets of Chinatown in the Float Parade, and enjoy a lineup of local talent at various events.
