"Most over rated place in Australia."

I lived there for 12 months. Yes, the weather is pretty good all year round. There are a few nice beaches and interesting historical landmarks, but once you have seen them once, that's them done. The anti social behaviour in the town was bad enough prior to the communities closing down, now its a nightmare. Expensive to live and expensive to travel by any means anywhere else.

"Paradise right near one of the greatest beaches on the planet"

A place where you can live with low stress and good options for walking and swimming. Tropical in the wet and perfect for nine months of the year. You can live over near Cable Beach itself, but there is a bit of traffic from the port bypass these days - or you can live on the 'old Broome, side of Cable Beach near the schools and university. Either way is good, but the areas around the primary schools and uni are amazing if you have kids. Safe walking from kindergarden time to uni days.
Pros
  • Safe and green
  • Great schools access
  • Anywhere is minutes from one of the greatest beachs in the world
Cons
  • 3 - 5 months tropical humidity
  • Pricier than other suburbs in Broome
  • Traffic is a bit noisy from trucks on streets closest to the beach
