Broome Bird Observatory
Broome Bird Observatory Review
A nonprofit research, education, and accommodation facility, the Broome Bird Observatory provides the perfect opportunity to see many of the Kimberley's 310 bird species, some of which migrate annually from Siberia. On the shores of Roebuck Bay, 25 km (15 miles) east of Broome, the observatory has a prolific number of migratory waders. The observatory offers a variety of daily guided tours in the dry season (from May to around September) costing A$70 per person for a half-day tour departing from the observatory. Pick-up from Broome can also be arranged. A full-day tour costs A$150 from the observatory and A$195 from Broome. Start times depend on the day of the week and the tides and season, but are typically from 8 am to 3 pm.
