The Port of Broome is the largest deep-water access port servicing the Kimberley region and is open to shipping on a 24 hours basis seven days a week. The port supports livestock export, offshore oil and gas operations, pearling, fishing, charter boats, cruise liners and is the main fuel and container receiver point for the region.

Note: These photographs (especially the wider shots) look much better when larger – so click any of the images below to see larger versions in an inline overlay slideshow gallery viewer.

The wharf is a steel piled structure with a concrete deck. A 640m long boardwalk heads out from the Port Authority along the side of the wharf.

The colour of the water out here on the coast of the Indian Ocean is incredible – a beautiful clear turquoise blue. Besides the fantastic view from the wharf my daughter was pretty intrigued by these long very very pencil thin fishes swimming around in the waters below us. It’s late morning on a harsh cloudless day right next to one of the busiest sea ports in the region and still it is very pretty.
