The Pearl Coast
Located at the south western tip of the Kimberley region, and once the
pearling capital of the world, is the town of Broome. Called the Pearl of the
North and often referred to as the southern gateway to the wilderness region of
the Kimberley, it is located on a peninsula with the Indian Ocean to the west and
Roebuck Bay to the south east.
With its languorous pace and cosmopolitan atmosphere,
offers to seduce the visitor with its easy-going tropical charm that
offers an alternative lifestyle for those wishing to escape. Broome
has a distinctly Asian feel, partly because of its history as a
pearling centre and partly because Perth, the state capital, is
closer to Indonesia then Sydney.
