Chinatown Taxis … we’ll get you there!
The colourful pearling capital of Australia is the ideal holiday destination for many from around the world.
Broome is home to approximately 16,000 people in the low/wet season and over 45,000 people per month during the tourist/dry season.
The coastal tourist town is the gateway to the north Kimberley region of Western Australia.
The Kimberley’s Dry Season, from May to October, is the most popular time for visitors. The warm, dry winter months offer a tropical getaway from the colder southern locations of Australia.
