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.
