Broome Affectionately known as the 'pearl of the north', it's the home of South Sea pearls - among the largest and most coveted commercially-harvested cultured pearls in the world. Their discovery in the 1800s fuelled a mass-migration almost as epic as the gold rush. Japanese, Filipino and Malay pearl divers arrived in droves seeking their fortune, creating a melting pot of cultures that makes Broome the multicultural town it is today.
The pearling capital of Australia, Broome is the western gateway to the Kimberley wilderness - home to world-famous Cable Beach sunsets and the natural phenomenon of the Staircase to the Moon.

Wild Flowers In Broome
Wildflowers vary with the seasons. In the cooler months the land is covered with yellow-flowering cassias and wattles, northern bluebells and purple mulla-mullas. After rain many plants bloom profusely. Karijini is home to a variety of birds, red kangaroos and euros, rock-wallabies, echidnas and several bat species. Geckos, goannas, dragons, legless lizards, pythons and other snakes are abundant. Look for large, striking termite mounds scattered throughout the hummock grasslands. Look out also for mounds of pebbles built by the Western Pebble-mound mouse but please do not disturb them.Day 9
