Welcome to Broome
Cable Beach, with its luxury resorts, hauls in the tourists during high (dry) season (April to October), with romantic notions of camels, surf and sunsets. Magnificent, sure, but there's a lot more to Broome than postcards, and tourists are sometimes surprised when they scratch the surface and find pindan just below.
The Dry is a great time to find casual work, while in the Wet (low season) prices plummet.
Each evening, the whole town collectively pauses, drinks in mid-air, while the sun slinks slowly towards Madagascar.
