Broome port Jetty is the city’s link to the world, built in place of an older and much smaller jetty. The structure was primarily designed to accommodate large cargo and cruise ships, but the wharf, with its blue waters in stark contrast to the red rock formations and red sands of the beach, is a popular tourist attraction. You can walk along the jetty to spot turtles and fish, or visit the nearby seafood café, which offers fresh fish meals and a variety of drinks. Visitors looking for some exciting fishing opportunities can try their luck right at the jetty, where local fishermen often catch Australia’s native barramundi.

A great place and regular stop off point for the passing CLS (Commonwealth Lighthouse Service) tender vessels. In particular the MV Cape Don (pictured) which would usually call into Broome 3-4 times a year. The first thing you notice are the tide changes. The tide movements in the Kimberley are quite amazing !!
Great place to fish, walk the jetty or stop for a meal at the small cafe.
