Within a few hours of arriving in Broome, my hubby and I both agreed we absolutely loved it.
The last few years travelling with kids has at times been a little (or a lot!) stressful – but Broome was so very easy.
Just a 2.5 hour flight from Perth, we arrived at beautiful Cable Beach Club less than ten minutes after collecting our suitcase.
Broome is so relaxed and laid back and unmistakably Australian, with it’s red earth, white sandy beaches and blue sunny skies – but it also has lots of fascinating international influences which makes it very unique and unlike anywhere else we’ve visited in the world.
Cable Beach Club is just gorgeous, the frangipani lined pool area has a large undercover kids pool, and right next to it there is a soft fall playground, water playground, mini golf, tennis court, kids activity area and a big screen TV playing kids shows.
Twice a day there are childrens activities including face painting, balloons, circus activities and team sports – and twice a day complimentary icy poles are handed out for the kids.
Our girls were free to safely run, play and have fun, and because they were happy – we were happy, and so relaxed!
Cable Beach Club has a number of amazing restaurants including The Sunset Bar and Grill, Club Restaurant, Zensai and Rambutan. Make sure you book as the restaurants get very busy.
I also enjoyed a relaxing massage at the Chahoya Spa – it’s a must if you stay at the resort!
Ava and Chloe were sick the first few days (arrrggghh – no sleep!) which meant a trip to the Broome Medical Centre and we were really impressed with the care we received.
The town or ‘Chinatown’ as locals call it has a Woolies and Coles, plus loads of gorgeous specialty stores and lovely cafe’s where we enjoyed some delicious juices, coffee and milkshakes. There is also a weekend market with lots of yummy food and fun stalls.
Chinatown also boasts the worlds longest running outdoor Sun Cinema – where you can still go and see a recently released movie!
There were so many other things to love about Broome; it was super clean, there were no mosquitoes, great food, the most spectacular sunsets and we were amazed at just how easy it was and how close everything is.
It was a short 2 min stroll from our room to the pool, and from the pool it was just 5 minute walk to The Sunset Bar and Grill where we had breakfast and watched the camels walk past in the mornings, and watched the sunset and had dinner each evening.
NOTE: This time of year (end of June / early July) it was very chilly before 9am and after 6pm, so pack jeans, long sleeved tops, cardigans or knits. But after 9 am it starts to really warm up to a top of around 31 or 32 degrees.
If you don’t have children – Cable Beach Club does have an adults only pool with villas that back onto the pool area.
Broome has captured our hearts and we cannot wait to head back again very soon!
