Cable Beach

Natural Attractions

Discover the beauty of the Kimberley’s golden hour as the world-famous Indian Ocean sunsets of Cable Beach dazzle in shades of pink, orange and purple. Take a ride on a camel train or sail on a scenic boat trip as the sun sinks below the horizon, or simply watch in awe as the sweeping expanse of sky transitions from day into night.

A sanctuary of sugar-white sand and gin-clear waters, Cable Beach is a 10-minute drive or bus trip from the township of Broome. From Perth, it’s a two-and-a-half-hour flight to Broome; if you’re driving, allow at least two days for the 2,240-kilometre journey.

It might be named after the telegraph cable that connected Australia’s north-west to the rest of the world in 1889, but this tropical paradise encourages you to disconnect from the stresses of everyday life as you explore 22 kilometres of sun-drenched beach.

Enjoy the view from underneath a beach umbrella or get adventurous with a range of water sports. Wander the dunes and self-guided walking trails of Minyirr Park or climb aboard a boat to chart a course along the coast.

At the end of the day, Cable Beach’s renowned camel trains make for a striking silhouette against the flame-red sky. Get in the saddle and join this swaying, stately procession as it makes its way along the sparkling shoreline.
