PLAN

Broome is a year-round des­ti­na­tion with no real sum­mer or win­ter, just “the wet” and “the dry” sea­sons. The dry sea­son is the most pop­u­lar time to visit with warm days, balmy nights and clear blue skies with lit­tle rain, ex­tend­ing from April/ May through to Septem­ber/Oc­to­ber. The wet is spec­tac­u­lar but ex­pect very hot days, iso­lated thun­der­storms and tor­ren­tial down­pours. Be­tween Jan­uary and March, Broome ex­pe­ri­ences its mon­soon and there can be cy­clone ac­tiv­ity, con­sis­tent, heavy rain and pos­si­ble flood­ing.
