Why not extend your stay in Darwin or Broome to see more of these regions?

From Darwin you can explore the Top End's national parks and from Broome you can learn about the town's pearling history and how the interesting mix of Asian cultures makes Broome unique or go to the outdoor cinema to see a movie. Why not spend a few days exploring the region and take in the stunning scenery of the Kimberley or head south through the Pilbara region.

If you're in Broome from 03-05 Sep 2020, you'll be able to witness the Staircase to the Moon. This amazing natural phenomenon happens only 3 nights each month and occurs when the full moon rises across Roebuck Bay's exposed flood plains to create the illusion of a staircase leading from the beach directly to the full moon.

Please call our Brisbane-based travel team on 1300 414 198 to book this amazing getaway or for suggestions on how to extend your holiday.
