Anastasia’s Pool

Natural Attractions

In Broome, see Anastasia’s Pool, a natural rock pool which is part of the history of the town and tells a touching story.

The pool was modified by a former lighthouse keeper, to make it easy for his wife, Anastasia, to access.

Anastasia suffered badly from arthritis and found relief in the warm water of the Indian Ocean which filled the pool at high tide.

Unfortunately, wild weather and waves in 2014 severely damaged Anastasia’s Pool. Its’ walls were broken and there was no longer any concrete in the bottom of the pool. The Shire of Broome decided the pool could not be repaired. Evidence of the pool still remains visible.

Located on the north side of Gantheaume Point which is well worth a visit for its dinosaur footprints.

Thought to be 130 million years old, the footprints can be seen at very low tides. You can find out the tide times best suited by contacting the Broome Visitor Centre.

Gantheaume Point is just a short drive from Broome’s town centre.
