Hi all, Heading to Broome in early July 2007 via Kunnunuura, GRR, Mitchell Plateau etc and was wondering if any one could let me know if it is necessary to book Caravan Park Sites at Broome for this period and for how long do you need to book. We will be looking at six (6) sites - preferably close together.
Have heard that we need to book Broome fairly early. The rest of the trip we will be camping or just see how we go when we arrive somewhere.
Any tips on what to see/do out of the ordinary tourist things would be appreciated too. Thanks to all on this forun. It is a great read and very amusing at times too.

Yep, I know a lot of info is in previous posts but a lot of it is conflicting so just testing the current feeling as to what to do.

G'day NRE,

Have a look at the search function, type in "Broome", there are a lot of posts like 27358 for example. The main point is that July is peak time and a booking will be required. There is lots to do in Broome and it will depend on your budget, personally one of the highlights for me was fishing for sailfish - not cheap but certainly a buzz.



Kind regards

hi - you defintely need to book Broome early - the earlier better, especially with a bigger group ie. 6 sites. Also if you want to go to cape leveque (which i would thoroghly recommend), you'll need to book this too.

We did a similar trip in 04 and it was fantastic. The best places we went were the mitchell plateau, the bungle bungle NP and cape leveque. Enjoy your planning!

I second Cape Leveque!!! If possible, book one of the beach huts - just above high tide mark, palm frond roofs and walls, sand floor, open front, fireplace, cold water shower. These are $40 per night, but are worth it just for the view! Book now!!

Yep, I'd say book at Broome now. What date are you on the GRR. I'll be going to Kalumbaru in 26 days (but who's counting), leaving Kununurra on the 12 of June

Have a good trip
Andrew

Leaving for Kimberley in 30 days- all the sites, books and assorted info. I have checked out for this trip says book during those dates of yours due in part to the WA school holidays- (needless to say, I haven't actually got around to it yet)- have a great trip- I reckon u can just about find enough about it all and then some at this expoloreoz.site..I wouldn't worry about trying to avoid the 'tourist' things, after all it's those things up there that we're driving all that way to see.and we're all tourists unless we live there...
