BROOME: NO FILTER NEEDED

Have you ever seen an image of Australia’s natural landscape as striking as this one? The aerial photo taken in Broome, in Western Australia, perfectly captures the stunning red-orange soil and turquoise waters that the area in Australia’s north-west is synonymous with.

Situated in the Kimberley region, just over 2,200km north of Perth, Broome itself is a thriving township of approximately 14,000 people. An area that captures the hearts of locals and tourists alike, millions of hectares of land and sea in the Kimberley’s is National Heritage Listed.

The region supports industries such as pearls, seafood and livestock, agriculture, minerals, oil and gas, and of course, tourism, with domestic and international tourists in their tens-of-thousands visiting each year, particularly during the peak tourist season of June to August.

Visitors can see dinosaur footprints forever imprinted in the rock, visit a working pearl farm and learn how this industry has shaped the region, and understand the cultural significance of the area on an Aboriginal walking tour.

The real attraction, though, is the 22km stretch of white sandy beach, known as Cable Beach. Named for the telephone cable that connected Indonesia to this part of Australia, Cable Beach is often named among the world’s best beaches. And it’s little wonder why.

Bordering the white sands are the clear, calm, turquoise waters of the Indian Ocean and the deeply pigmented orange soil of the Australian outback. Cars are permitted to drive on some sections of the beach, while the iconic camel rides provide a slower pace, for those experiencing their gentle sway first-hand and for those watching on at sunset.

The environment is perfect for exploring with your family or wooing your love, and the natural beauty is an Instagramer’s dream.
