Chinatown

Shopping and Markets

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 half hour flight from Perth, it’s easy to add Broome to your Western Australia holiday itinerary.

Chinatown has been a bustling, flourishing hub since the 1800s, when discovery of the world’s biggest pearl shell sparked a massive migration, comparable to a gold rush. The original corrugated iron huts that once housed pearl sheds, billiard saloons, opium dens and brothels are now home to some of the world’s finest pearl showrooms.

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.
