In partnership with Broome Visitor Centre.
Broome local Ash Vagh recently shared some of his favourite features of Broome’s tropical season with the Broome Visitor Centre. Broome offers some of the most untouched landscapes, especially when he ventured up through Cape Leveque and beyond. The tropical climate, opportunities for adventure, mixed with an amazing lifestyle, are why he truly enjoys living the good life in Broome.
‘There is so much happening in the tropical season. The best sunsets, clouds, colourful skies of pink, magenta and orange – it just makes Broome so much more beautiful. You can sit on the beach, in the warmth of the evening, and watch the light shows,’ says Vagh.
The First Nations culture adds to the appeal of Broome with many Indigenous tours to try. Vagh’s experience working in remote communities and learning about traditional languages being preserved, encouraged his interest in the ancient history of Broome and the Dampier Peninsula.
The recently revitalised Chinatown is a fusion of many cultures well-represented through the local shops, heritage centres, walking tours, community events and even the musicians performing at the local venues.
‘There is just always something you can get involved with to get to know the real Broome,’ says Vagh.
Vagh loves the wide range of restaurants and cafes when it comes to dining out after an action-packed day. ‘The mix of cuisines available in Broome is huge and Broome attracts a variety of chefs offering varied menus in the dry season.’
Local cruise operators cater for a diverse range of his water-based passions. Vagh says he is often surrounded by massive sea turtles and unique fish species during his ocean adventures. He encourages those without access to a boat to book with cruise or fishing charters who will take them on the trip of a lifetime, or to hook the catch of a lifetime.
