Broome

A relaxed town of tree-shaded streets and scenic coastal stretches, Broome gained renown as a center of the pearling industry in the late 19th century.
Your inner history buff will appreciate Japanese Cemetery and Our Lady Queen of Peace Cathedral. Step out of the city life by going to Dolphin & Whale Watching and Cable Beach. Spend the 2nd (Mon) wandering through the wild on a nature and wildlife tour. There's still lots to do: look for all kinds of wild species at Malcolm Douglas Crocodile Park and Animal Refuge, head outdoors with Staircase To The Moon, examine the collection at SSJG Heritage Centre, and pause for some serene contemplation at Catholic Diocese of Broome.

You'll gain 2 hours traveling from Melbourne to Broome due to the time zone difference.

Wrap up your sightseeing on the 5th (Thu) early enough to travel to Talbot Bay.
