Broome has a lot going for it. If you're keen to enjoy beautiful natural scenery, you might want to check out Gantheaume Point, where you can take a 4x4 and rough it for an afternoon or put your boat in the water and take an enjoyable little afternoon cruise. The sand is hard, and the rocks seem to actually change color as the sun rises. Going out about 30 metres into the sea, there are early Cretaceous era dinosaur footprints that can still be seen 130 million years later, and there are tons of plants that have been fossilized in the area, making this region a significant piece of the early Australian historical puzzle.
Cable Beach is also a popular destination for holiday makers looking to enjoy pristine sand, surf and sun. It is also home to one of the most popular nude beaches in Australia and offers memorable camel rides of the beach at sunset. Nearby Minyirr Park is a coastal reserve that lets you see how the area east of Cable Beach was before development ever touched the area.
