Hi all. I'm planning a trip to Broome and surrounding regions for later this year and am wondering if anyone knows about secure parking for a van for a couple of weeks in the Broome or Derby areas.
I intend to leave it locked somewhere safe if possible and travel the Gibb River Road etc. using a tent for camping on the way.
Any advice on this would be appreciated.

Might pay to email them for short term rates.

Broome is really crowded from June to August inclusive.
If you haven't booked into a park you might have trouble if you just rock up.
The PCYC in Broome might be able to put you onto a place to store your van as they run an overflow park in Scott street just around the corner from the Roebuck Bay Caravan Park in old Broome, lovely spot.
The Roebuck roadhouse is about 30 k's east of Broome at the highway T junction,
they might store vans there.
Best of luck.

G'day Alan,

might also be worth giving Willare Roadhouse a call I reckon.
(08) 9191 4775 I think.

Another option might to ring the Shire of Derby-West Kimberley on 08-9191 0999 and ask them if they can refer you to someone in the Light Industrial Area who has a secure yard suitable for parking your van for a few days.

Enjoy the GRR

Thanks everybody, I'll give all your ideas a go.......
30mins later I have good news and there is secure storage, surrounded by fences, dogs patrolling and a living on site caretaker/worker.
Bookings are essential, as according to the owner they're "as full as a fat ladies socks" at that time of year!
Only $35 per week which is great.
Thanks again.
