    Broome

    May 14 in Australia

    We stayed close to Broome and drove in the morning to Cable Beach for breakfast. It's a really pretty beach but not as spectacular as we expected it to be. Afterwards we went to the Visitor Center and the attached pearl museum which teaches a bit about the pearling beginnings of Broome.
    Later in the afternoon we went to Gantheaume Point a picturesque setting of red rocks and blue water. Besides that are there dinosaur footprints in the rocks which are only visible in low tide. They weren't as big as expected but still interesting. In the evening we went to Cable Beach to watch the impressive sunset.Read more

    Broome (birthday celebrations!)

    August 22, 2017 in Australia

    Marley had been counting down to his birthday since before we left home (!!) and another bonus of not being on the Gibb was that his request for birthday dinner of fish and chips was a bit easier to arrange!
    The much anticipated day finally arrived - there were presents, birthday wishes sent via phone and video from friends and family, pin the tail on the donkey, birthday cake (the order was "chocolate, inside and out"), an afternoon on glorious Cable Beach and we finished with fish and chips at sunset on the sand. One very happy 5 year old declared the day "awesome" and we all agreed!Read more

    Broome (more beach and sunsets!)

    August 21, 2017 in Australia

    There's a positive to every negative and the disappointment of not being able to do the Gibb was soon outweighed by the fact we gained extra days in Broome! We all relished the opportunity to have a swim at the beach - and what a beautiful beach it was! Many hours were spent enjoying the water, relaxing or scratching around in the sand (for the kids!).
    The only thing that can come close to a day at the beach in Broome must be watching a sunset from the same spot! Different every night and always amazing. It was great to sit on the white sand at Cable Beach and watch the sun dip lower but equally spectacular were the colours of the rocky cliffs at Gantheaume Point at the end of the day.Read more

    Broome (again!)

    August 31, 2017 in Australia

    As we left Cape Leveque we decided to visit the Aboriginal community at Lombadina which is only 3km off the main road. We drove down the sandy red road to find a green oasis - lots of shady trees and lush green grass. We dropped in to the office to pay the $10/car entry fee and buy a loaf of the locally baked bread (delicious!) before checking out the historic church with its paperbark ceiling. We'd heard the beach was good so we changed into bathers and started the walk down to the sand - we'd decided it wasn't worth letting the tyres down to drive onto the beach, however we soon realised it was a bit further than we thought! A lovely guy called Bruce who was staying in the cabins saw us heading off and followed us down to offer us a lift which Grandma and Grandpa and Meg gladly accepted. The rest of us continued on foot with a little local dog who joined us for the walk. The walk was definitely worthwhile - the pristine, white sandy beach and crystal clear water was even better than Cape Leveque. We cooled off in the water, beachcombed for some gorgeous shells and the kids had fun playing with their new furry friend! In the meantime, Grandpa got a lift back with Bruce and brought their car back to ferry us all (dog included!) back to the town. Reluctantly we headed off just after noon to make sure we got back to Broome in time to pick up the caravan.
    Our "double-up" habit continued as we returned to Broome and there wasn't much protest when we decided to extend our 2 day stay by another night! We ended up back at Cable Beach Caravan Park but because it was starting to empty out as the grey nomads all began their migration south, we scored the "best site in the park", a huge space on the fence line and right near the pool - perfect!
    We farewelled Grandma & Grandpa with fish and chips on the beach (kids had well and truly had their fix of fish and chips by the time we left Broome!) at sunset and did some not-so-exciting jobs like grocery shopping and car washing in between plenty of swims at the beach and pool. Two of the families that had been on our tag along tour at Kooljaman were staying at the same time so the kids had lots of fun catching up with some new friends.
    We visited the Town Beach Market on Thursday night for dinner (delicious Japanese for Jen, Balinese noodles for Roy and dumplings and pizza for the kids - nice change from fish and chips!!) and Marley bounced around on the jumping castle while Meg and Finn did battle inside the inflatable bouncing balls - almost more fun for the spectators!
    Friday afternoon was spent soaking up the sun for our last few hours on Cable Beach and then we all agreed dinner on the beach one last time was a fitting way to end our Broome experience. We headed to Zander's to get (more!) take away dinner and check out the art installation set up on the grass. Luckily we'd had some amazing low tide sunsets previously because although the sunset itself was spectacular it was quite high tide and really windy! It didn't stop us from enjoying our last Cable Beach outing - and we'll be back...someday!

    Cable Beach

    September 26, 2016 in Australia

    Die Auswirkungen des "Oktoberfestbieres" waren zum Glück nicht wie üblich - lag wohl auch an dem Bier 😁

    Wir brachen gestern früh also gleich zum Markt im - nennen wir es mal - Ortskern auf. War echt nett und beflügelt von Iced Coffee und Dumplings spazierten wir noch ins "China Town"-Viertel, wobei hier sonntags beinahe alles geschlossen war.
    Zum Glück gabs verlockende Cafés ☺
    Abends besuchten wir das älteste noch betriebene Open Air Kino der Welt. Es versprühte wirklich den Charme dieser Zeit...Der Film "Bad Moms" eher die heutigen Verhältnisse 😆 Dennoch war er total lustig und können wir jedem nur empfehlen!

    Der Plan für heute war schlicht:
    zu einem der 10 schönsten Strände der Welt und dort bleiben.
    Und der Strand enttäuschte nicht im geringsten!
    Uns fehlten die Worte bei dem Anblick...
    Kaum Leute trotz des tollen Wetters und des Feiertages (the Queen's birthday) machten den Strand sogar noch besser!

    Den Sonnenuntergang anzuschauen war dann ein Muss und ebenfalls unvergleichlich.

    Broome

    April 4, 2017 in Australia

    Van Karijini rijden we naar Broome. Onderweg is er maar weinig te doen, het is nog wetseason en daarom is er veel dicht. In Port Hedland, een ijzerstadje, worden we bij de supermarkt aangesproken door een boer op z'n motor. Hij vraagt Antoinne en mij 'hey you backpackers, got any spare girls?'. Goede opening zeg. Wij vertellen 'm dat we er geen over hebben (we hadden er wel een maar die is net uitgestapt in exmouth 😂). Hij zoekt een horse girl om te werken(?) op z'n farm, daarna nodigt ie ons uit om op z'n erf te kamperen en bier te drinken. We zeggen netjes dat we dat zullen doen als we niks kunnen vinden maar we weten allebei dat dat geen goed idee is 😜. Onze volgauto heeft inmiddels een nieuwe batterij gescored en die wisselen we op 'n parkeerplaats met de oude, de auto start weer zonder hulpmiddelen!

    Door een paar vreselijk zielige aborigional plaatsjes komen we aan in Broome, nog een zielig stadje.. In het information center horen we weer aan hoe mooi het allemaal wel niet is, je moet hier zeker twee dagen blijven. In een middag hebben wij het tegendeel al bewezen en spenderen de dag op het strand. Na een nacht slapen op de camping rijden we door richting Darwin.

    Broome

    June 5, 2017 in Australia

    We arrived in Broome, the unofficial capital of the Kimberley, in the PM of Sunday with the plan to set up camp and then call in to see Jan and her husband Dave . Jan did her nursing training with Angela 40 years ago. After meeting up with Jan and Dave we took a short walk across the dunes to meet up with a few of their neighbours to share a drink and watch the beautiful sunset. We were then treated to a magnificent evening meal at Jan and Dave's beautiful home. Jan organised to take us up the coast the next afternoon.
    We made plans of other attractions to see over the next few days. These included the usual first stop at the local visitors center, a stroll through old Chinatown, a visit to the very famous Cable Beach, a wander through the town's centre and a look at the pearl showrooms. We planned a movie night at the outdoor Sun Pictures - this outdoor cinema opened in 1916, and is the oldest operating outdoor picture garden in the world. We planned a visit to Matso's brewery where we could sample some of their award winning beers including an alcoholic ginger beer. We took a drive to Bedford park which overlooks spectacular Roebuck bay and saw a replica of a chest that belonged to William Dampier.

    Cable Beach Club, Broome

    April 19, 2015 in Australia

    All good things must come to an end and today is the last day at Cable Beach Club, and I'm feeling a little rusty after too many wines last night so the only sensible thing to do is swim my sorrows away
