Broome Car Rental
Located on the cost of northern Western Australia – Broome is a tropical seaside town that many visitors see as the gateway to the Kimberley region. Budget has two convenient car rental branches in Broome, where you can pick up your car, SUV or 4WD, and then go and explore what this great region has to offer.
Being on the coast, visiting the world famous Cable Beach should be the first item on your list of things to see. Here you’ll find 22 kilometres of pristine white sand, and the crystal clear waters of the Indian Ocean. The best time of year to swim is during the dry season (April to November) when lifeguards also patrol the beach. As well as swimming, why not arrange to go on a camel ride while you’re here – rides operate along the beach regularly, and it’s definitely a different way to explore the local environment!
On the other side of the peninsula you’ll find Town Beach – a far more sheltered beach, much closer to town (as the name suggests!). Be sure to see the ‘Staircase to the Moon’ from Town Beach if you’re lucky enough to be in town at the right time. Staircase to the Moon is a natural phenomenon which occurs a couple of days each month during the middle of the year. The full moon rises over the exposed tidal flats of Roebuck Bay, and the reflections from the water look like a Staircase to the Moon!
As well as the beautiful coastal scenery, Broome is also famous for pearls. The pearling industry has contributed to much of the town’s history. Why not use your hire car to take a drive to one of the pearl farms located in the Broome region to learn about how pearls have been harvested historically, and modern day pearl farming practices.
