Western Australian beaches – Cable Beach

Western Australian beaches – Cable Beach

This week it is going to be SCORCHING here in Western Australia!

Now I know we generally love our weather here in the west but there are limits – the 40 degree forecast for Perth for the next few days is pushing it a bit far. Personally, I’ll be hiding in the air conditioning till it all goes away but for those who revel in the heat and the sun and the surf it’s perfect beach weather.

Continuing my series on Western Australian beaches (see my first post on Burns Beach here) I’d like to introduce you to Cable Beach in Broome.

Today, on Australia Day, I wanted to show you all one of the most iconic beaches in the world – and when you think of Cable Beach you immediately think sunsets and camels. Even visitors who claim not to do ‘touristy’ things can’t help themselves when it comes to Cable Beach.

You simply have to sit on the beach, preferably with a champagne in hand, and watch the sunset and you have to take a ride on the famous camels of Cable beach. When I was there a few years ago I took a camel ride with Red Sun Camels and had an amazing evening, sitting up high, watching the sun set. If you want to do something a bit different, take a trip out on the water in an old pearling lugger to watch the sun go down.

I’ve been to Broome a couple of times and would love to go back again but for now I’ve had to be content with going through my photos and choosing the ones to show you. It’s impossible to take a bad shot of a Cable Beach sunset so being selective hasn’t been easy.

Enjoy, have a great Australia Day and, if you’re in Perth this week, try and stay cool this heat.

    • It’s lovely when photos can take us back to so many good times that we’ve had while travelling. Broome is certainly a place you don’t forget in a hurry :-)

  5. Hello Pam, my name is Tarsha and I have recently begun my own small bookkeeping business, Shine Bookkeeping. I am looking for a ‘hero’ image for my website, and was wondering if I might be able to please buy one of your images? My by-line is “the light at the end of your bookkeeping tunnel”, and I think one of your sunset photos would be brilliant to accompany it! The image I like the best is the sun setting over the beach, the one immediately below your text on the page Western Australia Beaches – Cable Beach. I look forward to hearing back from you. Thanks Pam. Kind regards Tarsha
