Remote and beautiful true Australian experience
With an area ten times that of the UK, and a population a quarter the size of London, there is no problem finding your personal space in remote and wonderful Western Australia. Famous for its spotless blue skies, natural wonders, an abundance of remarkable wildlife attractions and long, empty roads, this is a truly special part of the world.
Our early morning camel ride along Cable beach was certainly an interesting way to start our day off in Broome. Next we headed to a Pearl museum where we had a fabulous and entertaining insight into the old-style deep sea pearl diving by a gentleman that had been one of the areas local divers for years, after some retail therapy in the shop treating myself to some gorgeous pearl earrings, it was time to board the boat for an afternoon of sailing to enjoy the beautiful coastline Broome had to offer. Our day ended sitting on the beach watching the sunset with an ice cold beer in hand!
