It’s located at the southern end of Cable Beach and has a lot to offer visitors. It’s a popular jump-off point for water activities like kayaking and whale watches, it’s home to a lighthouse, and it even features dinosaur footprints that can be spotted at low tide. These footprints have been preserved in the reef rock at Gantheaume Point and are more than 130 million years old.
When is the best time to visit Cable Beach?
The Broome region has a tropical climate, so there are two seasons to plan around when booking Cable Beach holiday packages: wet season and dry season.
The wet season falls between November and April, and this is the less popular time to travel on Cable Beach packages. It’s a good time to travel if you’re looking to avoid the peak tourist season and also save some cash – hotels and accommodation in Cable Beach lower their rates slightly in the low season. Come prepared for hot temperatures that reach about 34°C during the day and a balmy 26°C at night. Humidity levels are high, and rain is common. You may also encounter a tropical monsoon if you travel on Cable Beach accommodation and flight packages between January and March. An upside to the extra rains means the waterfalls in the surrounding region are at their most beautiful.
Dry season between May and October is widely seen as the best time to book Cable Beach holiday packages. Daytime temperatures fall to around 30°C while evenings cool down to about 15°C. There’s also little to no rain during the dry season, so this is the best time to travel on Cable Beach packages if you’re looking to spend a lot of time outdoors. Keep in mind that this is the peak season, so you may want to book your hotel and accommodation in Cable Beach early.
