Itinerary

Day 1 - Broome, Australia

Located in the northwest of the Kimberley region and the far north of Western Australia, Broome is renowned for its rich history and its illustrious pearling era. The captivating Chinatown district, the historic heart of the city, and the iconic Japanese Cemetery, established in 1896, bear witness to the influx of Chinese and Japanese immigrants drawn by the prosperous pearl industry in the late 19th and early 20th centuries. Broome is also celebrated for the natural wonder known as the “Staircase to the Moon,” an optical illusion created by the Moon's reflection on the exposed sandbanks during low tide, resembling a staircase ascending toward the sky—an awe-inspiring spectacle of nature.
