In Detail

When the first Broome Visitor Centre was established it was run out of a DC3 passenger plane, providing an interesting if somewhat small novelty for visitors to the area. Eventually the wealth of information grew too large for the humble plane and a new centre was established which was in operation until December 2006.  At this time the Visitor Centre grew again and moved to its current location at 18 Broome Road where the original DC3 was located. 

The function of the centre is not only to book tours and accommodation, but to pass on information regarding local businesses, road conditions, events, tides, bus timetables and anything pertaining to Broome, the Kimberley and the Pilbara region. For visitors and locals alike the first stop in answering any queries, no matter how simple they may seem, is the Broome Visitor Centre.

Open seven days a week, the first major building seen on the drive into Broome is the Visitor Centre. With its shady lawns and picnic tables it is the ideal place to stop, rest awhile, and learn more about the surrounding area. The centre also has  a seasonal information booth at Cable Beach Sandbar & Grill Restaurant.
