DAY ONE - FRIDAY
Off we go! Your flight departs Townsville with Alliance Airlines at 6:45am before arriving in Broome, WA at 10:05am. After collecting your baggage, you will be transferred to your accommodation at the Cable Beach Club Resort and Spa. After a short break we will set off on your first adventure; a panoramic tour of Broome plus a visit to the Willie Creek Pearl Luggers and Chinatown.
Whilst you are enjoying the boundless beauty and colours of Broome, you'll be given refreshing cold towels and chilled water to keep you nice and cool throughout your journey. Discover the epic history of Broome at Cable Beach where Lord Alistair McAlpine’s story is told, as well as Broome’s pearling evolution and Catalina’s. You'll go on to explore Gantheaume Point, dinosaur tracks, Entrance Point, Town Beach, the Staircase to the Moon lookout, Chinatown and the iconic World-renowned Heritage site - the Japanese/Chinese Cemetery.
After the conclusion of your tour you will be taken back to your accommodation. Relax and have some down time in your room or around one of the two resort pools before dinner. For dinner, there are loads of options to consider, you have Sunset Bar & Grill which is exclusively open to guests of the resort, the Chichetti Club (modern Italian and Kichi Kichi (casual family dining) around the pool.
It's both Friday and Saturday night that you can revisit the Staircase to the Moon lookout. Staircase to the Moon is a natural phenomenon which occurs when a full moon rises over the exposed tidal flats of Roebuck Bay. This creates a beautiful optical illusion of a stairway reaching to the moon.
DAY TWO - SATURDAY
Waking up on day two, you'll start with a big buffet breakfast at the Sunset Bar and Grill. Today is a full-day in which you can explore Broome! Ask your adviser about all of the optional extras we have on offer. Our Friday tour will take you around the township, so perhaps today you could venture a little further.
DAY THREE - SUNDAY
Waking up for your last day in Broome, again you'll head to the Sunset Bar and Grill for a buffet breakfast, before your included staggered visit to the Willie Creek Pearl Luggers.
Be captivated by 150 years of history as you discover how Broome’s unique maritime and pearling heritage unfolded amongst the mangroves on the foreshore of Dampier Creek. It will have you travelling back in time to an era of courageous men who lived a life of danger, fortune and adventure. You will get to view some of the last remaining pearling luggers in Broome, and even watch some rare archival footage.
You'll also taste the subtle flavour of pearl meat from the Pinctada Maxima oyster, a true Broome delicacy, which is revered and sought after the world over.
After your tour, you will be taken straight to the Broome Airport to check in for your flight home. At 11:00am you will depart Broome for your flight arriving back into Townsville at 6:40pm.
