Broome is a strange town. A suburb of luxury resorts, a town center full of tourist shops, an ageing suburban scene, and a circular highway to top it off. It’s a hell of a place.

When I had a chance to take a walk around the town center, it was not all that different from any small town. However Broome has a way of throwing the odd curveball at you to remind yourself you’re in a unique setting.

The red dirt is inescapable. When the paving gives way to the bare Earth it takes over the landscape.

An interesting sight to see. The tides are so enormous, that a parking bay for a boat can look a little different later on.

From the edge of town I found a boardwalk that allowed visitors to walk amongst the mangroves, without getting wet.
