A visually descriptive 30 minute program portraying 'Broome' a spectacular destination, situated an the North West coast of Western Australia.
This tropical resort town, founded initially in 1883,is situated in an incredibly wild and beautiful corner of Western Australia.
Broome was once the prosperous and bustling centre of Australia's pearling industry. Overlooking the emerald waters of Roebuck Bay, Broome is still a pearling town but not in the scale of years gone by. In its hey day there were some 350 pearling luggers employing 3,000 men working out of Broome.
Divers went to depths of 27 metres and this resulted in many deaths. There was a predominant amount of Japanese divers and the Japanese Cemetery shows how they suffered.
There are many signs of the Pearling background of Broome with abandoned Luggers and Museums. We take you to Gantheaume Point, where dinosaur's tracks are embedded in sandstone at the base of the cliffs. It is commonly believed they lived here 130 million years ago. The tracks are visible only at a low spring tide.
The essence of this destination is captured at Cable Beach, where the sands seem to go on forever and at certain times of the year the moon creates a stairway to heaven, a spectacular sight captured by our camera's.
We bring the unique 'Sun Picture Theatre' in the heart of Broome - an open air Picture Theatre and the Bird Observatory set amongst the mangroves where an abundance of Birdlife revel in the peaceful and tranquil setting.
