Broome to Karijini National Park Getaway by Campervan
Day 1 Broome
Welcome to Broome, a thriving town home to pearls, and the 22km-long white-sand beach, and a dramatic war history. Take a stroll through the town and make sure you visit the wildly popular Matso’s Brewery, famous for its locally brewed mango beer.
Stay 1 night in Broome
Day 2 to 3 Broome to Port Hedland (609km)
Depart Broome for an early start this morning as you make your way to Port Hedland. Pack a picnic lunch and stop about halfway at Eighty Mile Beach, where you will witness an endless stretch of white sand and turquoise waters. As you arrive into Port Hedland head to your accommodation to rest for the night.
Port Hedland is a bustling port, home to ships and trains, as well as a great base for ocean-based activities and has a rich history. You can go fishing and crabbing or when in season, whale watching or get a glimpse of the baby turtles making their maiden voyage. History lovers should embark on the award-winning Cultural and Heritage Trail, which maps out the early times of European settlement, or visit the local museums.
If you are travelling between March to October you can witness the Staircase to the Moon, a natural phenomenon where the full moon rises over the exposed mudflats at extremely low tide creating an optical illusion of stairs reaching to the moon. You can also see this from Roebuck Bay in Broome.
Stay 2 nights in Port Hedland
Day 4 to 5 Port Hedland to Karijini National Park (318km)
Today make your way, where you will witness one of Western Australia’s most spectacular natural attractions. You will be in absolute awe with the stunning landscape as it surrounds you. Explore the ancient landscapes of gorges, crystal clear rock pools, emerald green waterfalls and tunnels of marbled rock and boulders.
Please note that National Park entry fees apply and must be purchased directly from the Department of Parks and Wildlife, or at the retreat itself. As you are travelling to a remote location, please check road conditions and dining opening hours before making your way to the park to ensure you are equipped with supplies.

Day 7 to 9 Port Hedland to Cable Beach (606km)
Make an early start as you make your way to Cable Beach in Broome. Cable Beach is just a short drive from the township of Broome and is renowned for its 22km of sun-kissed white sand, turquoise water and spectacular Indian Ocean sunsets. Cable Beach is very much part of Broome’s history as it earned its name from the telegraph cable laid between Broome and Java in 1889, connecting Australia’s North West with the world. Here you can just sit back and watch the iconic Cable Beach sunset, or take a stroll along the beach or join a camel ride with the sunset as your backdrop. Visit Gantheaume Point to hunt for dinosaur footprints, or head into Broome and visit the Broome Historical Society and Museum and stop into Matso’s Brewery for a cold brew. A must do is to visit Willie Creek Pearl Farm and discover how the rare and beautiful ‘Australian South Sea Pearl’. Take a drive to Roebuck Bay where you can also view the Staircase to the Moon natural phenomenon between March to October. Spend a day exploring further, or join a tour to Cape Leveque and discover One Arm Point and Cygnet Bay Pearl Farm.
