Great bus service, very friendly helpful drivers and made use of the discount offers on the back (Matsos beer paddle big thumbs up!). Great way of getting your bearings on arrival.

This is a great way to get around Broome, very cheap and compared to taxi great option. Would love to see hours of operation expanded but overall great service and drivers are excellent with local information

Melissa M, Manager at Broome Explorer Bus, responded to this reviewResponded November 27, 2018

Thanks so much for your review Andrew P. Hours of operation do extend during the high season, however as a privately operated business and because of limited patronage during the low season, it is difficult for us to increase beyond 9am - 6pm.

If you find yourself in Broome without a car, then make sure you are on the bus route. The drivers are friendly and informative, if you buy a pass it is a hop on and hop off service.

The bus route doesn't go to the airport. You are better off getting a taxi to your accommodation at Cable Beach and using the bus to explore Broome

We just buy the tickets on the bus. I would ask the driver what the best deal for you would be. They are very helpful and now operate as virtual tour guides announcing each stop and what you can do from each stop.
