I'll be in Broome towards the end of September for 1 night and am finding it a bit challenging to decide on which campground is best. Does anyone have an opinion? Looking for a nice tent site, clean facilities, and safe (seems break-ins are common). I stayed at Roebuck in 1999 and I remember talk of thefts from vehicles even back then, although we had no trouble the 3 nights we stayed. I don't remember it, but I wrote that it was a nice spot in my journal. Also looking at Tarangau, Palm Grove Holiday Resort, and Broome Caravan Park... It would probably be good too, if they take reservations for tent sites. Thanks!
I have 10 days to spend somewhere in Oz this Aug 2014 and have picked the Kimberley. My husband and I shall be going with our 25yr old daughter. I am thinking we wd land in Darwin and fly to Broome (Brits coming from Singapore). Or wd we be better just entering from Darwin? We all love driving esp my husband who is very experienced, but don't want to waste too much time just getting to the K. Will we have time to see enough of the outback country once we are there? Which wd be the best route in? Wd prefer the Gibb River Rd route. We want a real experience and don't want to go with a tour group tho it would be fun to meet up with others in the evenings. Do we need to plan well ahead with booking accom etc or can we just pitch up in 4WD? What about food/cooking etc. Do we need to buy everything in Broome/Darwin for the whole duration? Yr advice would be hugely appreciated as I am a complete rookie in OZ - my first trip over. Very excited! Rachel

Could someone who is a local give me the approximate sunset time in March
Any suggestions on a local tour guide or tour company that does day tours of Broome. Some friends and I are coming to Broome on a cruise ship and interested in doing a shore excursion for 4people. If needed, could probably get 12-15 people. Thanks. Sue

Are there problems with stingers at Cable Beach in say March to June? What are the average sea temp. from March to June?
Can anybody advise about the mysterious Broome? I've always wanted to go, as it seems like a pretty off-the-beaten-track destination... What's the highlight to see/do?
Flights are always outrageously expensive...when is a good time of the year to get a good price?
Many thanks in advance; Mike
What is the cost of the Camel riding in Broome along the beach?
We are travelling to Australia in December 2007, flying into Perth. We will drive to Broome from Perth but then would like to get to Cairns from Broome. We are finding it impossible to get a flight and cannot find any other means of transport between Broome and Cairns. We don't really want to drive from Broome to Cairns.
Can you please make some suggestions?
We will be in broome in about 6 days and am trying to find cheap decent accomodation - doeas this exist?!?! :-)
We are looking for a double room with en-suite and TV, it would also be great if we could get our own cooking facilites. We don't want to pay any more that around65 for a double room, but if it had its own kitchen we could up it to75 - does anyone know of anywhere that fits our needs??
Any help is so much appraciated! Thanks, Amy x
P.S. We also don't have much idea about what you can do in Broome so any ideas would be great! Any must do's?
We have just found out you cannot fly from Broome to Cairns (why why why?) and this disrupts our plans greatly! Can anyone suggest the cheapest way of doing this...we just need to get there quick and cheap with no sightseeing on the way!

We have been dying to go to Broome for eons and found a deal that is only valid for February. Should we bother going then, considering how incredibly hot and humid it will be? Can we expect daily rain or thunderstorms? I do not mind thunderstorms, but I get annoyed with just plain rain. :) How hot is it likely to be? Is it similar weather to Cairns in March?
If we go, we are thinking of finding some inexpensive accommodation for the first 6 nights, then stay at the Cable Beach Resort for the last two nights. Does this sounds like a good plan and does anyone have recommendations for where to stay for the first 6 nights?
We might want to camp for a night or two up near the lighthouse norther of Broome (can't think of the name of the place at the moment). Any suggestions for where to camp?
We might hire a 4WD for two days - if so, can anyone recommend which rental place does the best deal?
Thank you! :) Happy Holidays to everyone!!
I am planning a trip to Broome and while I am klnow a good answer is - "no time is long enough" I am just wondering if 2 weeks will give us time to venture outwards from Broome ie Bungle Bungles etc and not be rushed.
Also, planning for first week of April. Any ideas of whether the weather (ha!) will be any good?????
