YOU NEVER KNOW HOW DAYS CAN CHANGE – THE BEST WELCOME EVER, BROOME, WA

After spending an awesome time in Karijini National park, we were back on the road again. This time we were heading to Broome, a drive of 950 km… WE REALLY NEED TO BUY A SPARE TIRE!

The drive was pretty long and hard. No AC, 43 degrees outside, the car is literally a sauna!

As soon as we reached Broome, we jumped in the Ocean at Cable Beach. Such an awesome feeling to swim after this long drive!

The beach is GORGEOUS. Clear blue water, really really really long white sand beach… WOW, Cable beach is one of our favorite beaches in Australia so far.

After this refreshing bath, we had to look for a new tire… First check: GUMTREE. Do you know Gumtree? Gumtree is a website where you can buy and sell every kind of stuff in your local area. It’s a really useful website when you travel to Australia to find cheap cars, camping gear, jobs… EVERYTHING!

Anyway, we found a cheap tire on Gumtree and went to check it out. Sarah, an Australian woman, welcomed us at her propriety. We were impressed by her stunning garden with mangos trees everywhere and by her luxury villa. The house is magnificent with fountains in the entrance, high ceiling, nice paints, art and a pool with a gorgeous view of the Indian Ocean. That’s for us THE Australian dream!

Nice view

Unfortunately, the tire wasn’t in a good condition but even by not buying the tire, Sarah offered us some fresh drinks and invited us to enjoy the pool! SO KIND! (See our video here)

Honestly, one of the best thing about traveling in Australia is meeting great Australian people. They are so generous, always ready to help you…

 

Finally, after finding a tire in a garage in Broome, we enjoyed the 4WD again and went camping at Quondong Point.

Quondong Point is a free camping spot where you can camp on the dunes and enjoying the wonderful view of the Indian Ocean. The place is not crowded. You can just enjoy the feeling of having a private beach!

Don’t lose your cap!

We loved so much this area that we stayed there few days, walking on the beach, swimming in the (big) waves, watching the sunset… SO PEACEFUL.

INFORMATION ABOUT BROOME AND THE AREA

  • No free camp in the city
  • The closest free camp is about 20 km out of Broome. It’s not the best one: pretty small, overcrowded and really close to the main road… That’s okay for one night but not more!
  • Cable beach: the stunning beach where you can see the camels walking at sunset time

  • Town Beach: cute beach surrounded by the mangrove, at nightfall, we can see huge bats in the trees
  • No facilities at Quondong Point
  • On the way to Quondong Point, stopped at the Willie Creek Pearl Farm. The farm is gorgeous! Be aware that it’s not allowed to swim at Willie Creek because of the crocodiles.
