“Broome's past”
Reviewed April 19, 2014

A bit disappointed with this as we could not read any of the headstones. They are all written in Japanese. So we could not get a feel for their lives in Broome. But they were well kept and tidy.

“A Peaceful place”
Reviewed March 28, 2014

This is well worth the visit, if not just to see how many people gave their lives to the pearling industry in Broome.
