Historical Sites and Heritage Locations

Celebrating all that is unique about multicultural Broome, Chinatown is a dazzling blend of pearl showrooms, art galleries, east-meets-west restaurants and sidewalk cafes.

It’s easy to spend a day browsing, indulging and immersing yourself in its colourful history – a must-see on any Broome itinerary. And being a two-and-a-half hour flight from Perth, it’s easy to add Broome to your Western Australia holiday itinerary.

Chinatown has been the heart and soul of Broome since the pearling crews set up their first camps and corrugated tin sheds in the 1880s. Today, Broome has developed into an iconic Western Australian tourism town. A boutique retail hub and a site of historical significance, it is a unique and special place worth visiting!

The Broome Chinatown Revitalisation Project is bringing to life the long-held aspirations of the Broome community to preserve the town’s rich history, celebrate its local culture and reinvigorate economic and development opportunities.

Picking up a South Sea pearl or two is the ultimate memento of your trip – they’re among the largest and finest in the world. End the day with a night under the stars at Chinatown’s Sun Pictures, the oldest operating outdoor picture gardens in the world.
