Urban List - How To Spend 48 Hours In Broome

Oh Broome—you drowsy, intoxicating beast you. There is probably no better feeling in the world than watching a Broome sunset with a Matso's beer in hand and it seems like a whole lot of other people agree. Famous for the 22km long Cable Beach (which is every bit as spectacular in real life as you would think), Broome is beautiful, laid-back and rugged, oozing outback Australia vibes in spades.

Originally founded as a pearling port, this tiny, remote town 2400km north of Perth is also like no other town in Australia.

With its quirky history, red dirt, turquoise waters and fiery sunsets, Broome is a pretty bangin’ location for a cheeky weekend escape.

Lucky enough to be visiting soon? Here’s how you should spend 48 hours in Broome.


Your trip to Broome wouldn’t be complete without paying the guys at Moontide Distillery a visit. This small craft distillery has a knack for taking all of the best parts of Broome—the tropical weather, the stunning sunsets and beautiful native fauna—and packaging them up into delicious handcrafted spirits. Get around the White Pearl Gin, which is bursting with flavour from locally sourced Kakadu plum, white berry bush, mango and tamarind along with cinnamon myrtle and spices.
