Broome, also known as Rubibi, is located on the traditional lands of the Yawuru people, on the West Kimberley coast. It is a city with a rich multi-cultural, multi-layered history, well-known today for its pearling industry, white sands of Cable Beach, and historic Chinatown. At Gantheaume Point nearby, dinosaur tracks are revealed in the beach’s red rocks during low tide.  At certain times of the year visitors can also experience the Staircase to the Moon, a phenomenon that appears when the moon rises over exposed mudflats at extremely low tide.

Broome is also home to Australia’s national Indigenous publishing house, Magabala Books which houses its own onsite bookshop. Visitors to the region are warmly invited to browse the shelves for titles revealing the powerful stories and cultures of Australia’s First Nations people.
