Broome Then & Now

A town with a human history as vivid and varied as its landscape

For those of you with a thirst for knowledge and a desire to really immerse yourself in the heart of a place – this one’s for you.

Your bird’s eye tour will deliver scenes of spectacular beauty as we fly over a dramatic landscape of red cliffs, white sand and an ocean of blue and green.

But it’s when we touch down that it gets really special… where a host of local characters await to introduce you to the real Broome – then and now.

The Highlights

Travel back to Old (Old) Broome

We start with a drive through town to show you the sights of Old Broome – stopping at Streeter’s Jetty, Town Beach and more – to paint a picture of Broome some 150 years ago. It’s the nearest thing to a time machine.

Visit Beagle Bay and meet Nyul Nyul Elder Robert Dann

Next it’s wheels up and in the air on our way to meet Robert Dann at Beagle Bay, an Aboriginal community on the Dampier Peninsula. Enjoy a guided tour, a bite of bush tucker and a special didgeridoo performance right on the airstrip.

Barramundi lunch and a quick dip

Drawing inspiration from their pearling history, indigenous ingredients and local seafood, a barramundi lunch at Cygnet Bay Pearl Farm is the perfect taste of Broome (dietary options available). Be sure to jump in the infinity pool for a refreshing post-lunch swim – conveniently located right by the restaurant.

Cygnet Bay’s storied history as told by an old Pearl Masters great, great grandson

Before we get back in the air, Terry Hunter – descendant of old Pearling Master Harry Hunter – is going to tell you a thing or two about pearling, its history and what it looks like today. Plus, see the Pearl Farm and how it cultivates some of the most sought-after pearls in the world.

And a window seat to so much more…

You’ll have the best seat in the house to Cape Leveque, the Lacepede Islands, James Price Point and more – maybe even a passing whale. Your ever-knowledgeable pilot’s running commentary will ensure you won’t miss a thing.


We’ve got a lot to show you, so we depart Broome at 8am. To ensure we get away on time, pickups will begin bright and early at 7am.
