Camping near Broome guide

Overview

With its sugar-white sands, glittering turquoise waters, and backdrop of red-rock desert—Broome has no shortage of postcard views, and the coastal city is a strategic pit stop for road-trippers en route to the remote Kimberley region. Before you leave, be sure to admire the views at Roebuck Bay, enjoy a camel ride along Cable Beach, visit the dinosaur footprints at Gantheaume Point, and take a pearl farm tour. Accommodation options in Broome include bush campgrounds with unpowered sites, glamping chalets and safari tents, and seafront discovery parks and caravan parks with powered sites and a swimming pool onsite.

Where to go

Dampier Peninsula

White-sand beaches, red Pindan cliffs, and lush mangroves sweep the coastline of the Dampier Peninsula, north of Broome. Drive all the way up to Cape Leveque at the northern tip, stopping along the way to camp by secluded beaches, go bushwalking, and swim and fish at coastal lagoons.

Eighty Mile Beach

More beaches lie south of Broome, most notably the sunkissed shores of Eighty Mile Beach, one of the highlights of the northwest coast. It’s more than a six-hour drive from Broome to Port Hedland, so break it up with plenty of beaches breaks, go snorkelling at the Eighty Mile Beach Marine Park, and enjoy wildlife-watching along the coast—dolphins, flatback turtles, and migratory wading birds are all common sightings.

Kimberley Region

Intrepid campers heading out to explore the wild and remote Kimberley region—the northernmost tip of Western Australia—will be rewarded with some of the country’s most dazzling landscapes. Hop out of your motorhome or campervan to hike through ancient gorges, cool off at natural waterholes, and discover the national parks. You’ll find campgrounds along the Gibb River Road, and there are even a few free camping spots throughout the region.

When to go

The warm and dry winter months (May through October) provide the best weather for exploring Australia’s northwest coast. This is high season, so book campsites in advance, especially for trips over weekends and school holidays. Travelling during the wet season (November through April) can be tricky at times, as excess rainfall can limit access to some sites, and seasonal campgrounds may be closed. However, low season rates mean you’ll be most likely to snag a bargain.
