There's Plenty to do in Broome in January

Wednesday, January 09, 2019

Recently some guests of Minyirr Retreat gave us some feedback on their one week stay in January. They found that contrary to common believe, there is plenty to do in Broome this time of year.
These are some of the tours and activities they enjoyed while here:-

Saturday Broome Markets

The Broome Courthouse Markets are held in the beautiful Heritage listed gardens of the Broome Courthouse. Started over 25 years ago by a small group of locals wishing to trade local product, they have grown to become a major tourist attraction in Broome and host up to 115 creative stalls over the Dry Season. Trading every Saturday all year and Sunday from April – October, the local markets attracts visitors from far and wide.
Sunset Bar & Grill, Cable Beach Club Live Mussel Bar Saturday – Spanish mussels with chorizo, chilli, lime, saffron serviced with garlic break with a glass of wine or beer for $25  

Willie Creek Pearl Farm Tour by Coach

Willie Creek Pearl Farm is situated just 38km out of Broome or 17kms as the crow flies, on the picturesque protected tidal estuary of Willie Creek itself. For more than two decades, visitors have come to the farm to learn about the process of cultured Pearl Farming and to see first-hand how the most valuable Pearls in the world are produced. The calm and nutrient rich waters of the area make it the perfect spot to see the Pearl-producing Pinctada maxima oyster in its natural habitat. The crystal-clear waters and mangrove lined banks of Willie Creek are home to all kinds of wildlife, from barramundi to brolgas and even a few saltwater crocs! The journey out to Willie Creek is just as exciting, and our visitors are often welcomed by wild brumbies along the way. Willie Creek Pearl Farm is complete with its own jewellery showroom, showcasing stunning Australian South Sea Pearls as well as Pearls from all over the world. Willie Creek Pearl Farm is proud to be a Green Travel Leader.
