Victoria-based personal travel managers Nicole Edgar (representative for Narre Warren South) and Tania Patterson (representative for Clyde North), were thrilled to experience the coastal town of Broome in the Kimberley region on a famil hosted by Viva! Holidays.
“Broome has always been on my bucket list. I had fabulous ideas about walking along famous Cable Beach, watching its colourful sunsets and indulging at the five star Cable Beach Club Resort & Spa. I love outback Australia, and this famil provided the perfect opportunity to taste a little bit of it. I certainly wasn’t disappointed,” said Edgar.
She said the camel ride on Cable Beach proved most memorable.
“Riding a camel along Cable Beach, during one of its famous sunsets is an experience I will never forget. Definitely don’t miss the sunsets on Cable Beach even without the camel ride, it is a must do experience. And if you are in Broome between April to October on a full moon evening […] you can witness a natural phenomenon, called the ‘Stairway to the Moon’. This occurs when a full moon rises after dark, at low tide when the mudflats are exposed, creating the illusion of an individual stepped staircase leading up to the moon. It is something that needs to be seen to be believed.”
Patterson said a barramundi dinner was a highlight.
“I highly recommend a visit to the historical Matso’s Brewery and sample some local beers – my favourites were the mango beer, lychee beer and ginger beer – all simply delicious and perfect on a hot day. They also offer tasty upmarket ‘pub’ food cuisine, and I can’t speak highly enough of my barramundi dinner, my mouth still waters when I think about it! A tip though, request an indoor air-conditioned table, to avoid the heat and the flies!”
With 47 different styles of accommodation available at the luxurious Cable Beach Club Resort & Spa, there is something for everyone.
