Travelers who are not Australian citizens and returning permanent residents and their immediate family members need to apply for an exemption to enter Australia.

All international travelers are required to quarantine for 14 days at the first point of entry, unless they're granted an exemption upon request. Quarantines take place in state-designated facilities and fees depend on the state, ranging from $2500 for one adult in the Northern Territory to $3000 for one adult in New South Wales. International flights are currently being diverted away from Victoria. Airline crew are subject to self-isolation until their next scheduled flight.

In the case of onward travel within Australia, travelers are advised to check in advance with their travel/accommodation provider.. If you are looking to book a trip to Broome and are outside of the restricted areas, please take the proper precautions and stay informed about traveling during COVID-19.

Flights to Broome are in high demand during the dry season – May to September. This is when most tourists come to lie on Cable Beach, dip their toes in the Indian Ocean and perhaps take a camel ride. But there is much more to Broome than Cable Beach, beautiful as that 14 mile stretch of soft golden sand is. Head towards Cape Leveque Road and take a journey taken by the local people for thousands of years. This path with take you to the Dampier Peninsula where red earth landscape and unspoiled beaches are waiting to be discovered. At the tip of the Cape Leveque Road is the Kooljaman Resort, the award-winning Aboriginal-owned resort.

The Rowley Shoals lie 186 miles out to sea from Broome. They are a diving secret, one of the world’s best, yet one of the least known dive sites.

Broome Travel Information

  • Between Broome and Kooljaman is Beagle Bay, which has an amazing church. The white Sacred Heart Church was built by German Pallottine priests and brothers during the First World War when their movements were restricted. They decorated the interior of the church – especially the main altar – with mother-of-pearl shells. The side altars are decorated with opercula, a rare stone taken from shellfish. Time has taken its toll on the church and restoration and conservation projects are underway. 
  • The Kooljaman resort is remote, isolated and pure heaven. It’s about 137 miles north of Broome on the Dampier Peninsula. The resort is jointly owned by the Cape Leveque Aboriginal communities One Arm Point and Djarindjin. Snorkeling, fishing and enjoying the empty beach are just some of the activities you can enjoy. 
  • From July to October whale-watchers can observe the migrating whales breach offshore. 
  • Sun Pictures is Broome’s outdoor cinema and the “oldest open air cinema in operation.” It opened in 1916. 
  • Willie Creek Pearl Farm is about 22 miles from Broome. It’s a working pearl farm and offers demonstrations on pearl seeding. 
  • If you are planning to visit Broome, try to time them so you’ll be there when there is a full moon. The Staircase to the Moon is a natural phenomenon caused by the reflection of the moon on the mud flats in Roebuck Bay at low tide. The illusion created is one of a staircase to the moon.
