“Stairway to Heaven”
Reviewed June 10, 2012

Must be there at the right time of the month for the moon rise but if you are then it is a must see. Markets will probably be on at Town Beach for a look, shop and feed while you wait with the 100's of others for the tide and moon to provide a remarkable optical effect that actually does look like a stairway (or was it the few beers from Matso's helping the effect?). Take a blanket to sit on if you watch from the beach or Roebuck Bay Hotel also has a great view if you like bar service and fewer mosquitoes.

“Another side to Broome”
Reviewed May 26, 2012

Yes, there is more to Broome than Cable Beach. Take a tour and have a good look around, and you'll find Roebuck Bay, on the other side, although I only saw it briefly, during a quick pitstop in the tour bus, they say it's better to stay on the Cable Beach side of town, as the Roebuck Bay side is full of mosquitoes and midgies! Pack the repellant!!
