Welcome to Broome

The Broome Visitor Centre is thrilled to welcome cruise passengers to Broome.

The Broome Visitor Centre is a short walk from the cruise bus drop off location. Heading west on Napier Tce, walk along the path around Male Oval (or walk directly across the oval) to the entrance for the visitor centre just near the car park. Call us on 08 9195 2200 or get directions from one of the cruise arrival greeting team. We are open weekdays between 9am and 4pm.

The cruise meeting point on Napier Terrace in Chinatown, Broome
(opposite the Roebuck Bay Hotel Bottle Shop) is where the cruise arrival team will greet you and you can pick up maps, walk over to the visitor centre or jump on the Broome Explorer Bus to see the sights! The Broome Tram also departs close by.
