Cable Beach takes its name from the telegraph cable that was laid between Broome and Java in 1889 and today it provides the perfect location to enjoy the magnificent Broome sunsets. There are a variety of water sport activities available. For a really unique experience you can join the sunset camel rides that operate daily along the beach. A playground on Cable Beach Reserve will keep the children amused while parents soak up the relaxed atmosphere and spectacular views. With the ocean as its backdrop, the outdoor Cable Beach Amphitheatre plays host to a wide range of cultural events throughout the dry season and is a popular location for picnics during sunsets.With restaurants nearby, a visit to the beach can extend into a leisurely lunch or dinner as you unwind and let yourself succumb to "Broome Time”. At Gantheaume Point near Broome see ancient dinosaur footprints that are more than 120 million years old. You can see the footprints in the rocky reef area when the tide it low. A plaster cast of the tracks has been embedded at the top of the cliff for anyone who visits at high tide, or if you don’t want to walk on the reef. As well as harbouring these unique dinosaur footprints, Gantheaume Point offers stunning coastal scenery. Here, the fiery red cliffs meet the turquoise water of the Indian Ocean in dramatic fashion. On the northern side of Gantheaume Point is Anastasia’s Pool. This rock pool was built by a former lighthouse keeper for his wife who was crippled with arthritis. Gantheaume Point is a five minute drive from the centre of Broome.
