Dry Season - May To October
May is classed as the start of our ‘dry season’ and traditionally the most popular time to visit. Whilst the inhabitants of the southern parts of Australia are experiencing winter, Broome days are generally fine with temperatures in the vicinity of the 20’s to low 30’s. Humidity levels are low and the nights are cool with overnight temperatures ranging in the teens with temperatures rarely dropping below 5C. Broome does not usually experience any significant rain at this time of the year.
The Six Seasons of Yawuru...
The traditional owners of our land identify 6 seasons around the Broome region these consist of:
December to March is the wet season. During the rainy season you will experience magnificent sunsets and amazing lightening displays as the rain replenishes the land.
During April the rain begins to deplete and the weather is still humid and hot. Big tides and abundant water in the area encourage rapid growth in the natural landscape
At the start of May the cooler winds begin to come off the desert and dew forms at night, marking the beginning of the winter.
In June the beginning of the dry season is discernible with a drop in temperature, starry nights and blue skies.
The days start to warm up in September and the nights are still cool. A mist begins to form over the ocean and the area becomes
dry and thirsty.
The build up of the wet begins in October in anticipation of the rain. The humidity begins to build and the days heat up.
