When to Visit Broome for 4wd Tours
Posted: Nov 09, 2018
Broome doesn’t have the usual cold winters and warm summers many are used to. With Broome’s tropical climate, you will experience two very different seasons; a dry season and a wet season. The dry season generally runs from May to October and the wet season runs from November to April.
The Dry Season
During the dry season the weather in Broome is said to be perfect. The days are warm with clear blue skies, low humidity and temperatures ranging from approximately 17 to 31 degrees Celsius. There isn’t much rain at this time of the year and the nights are comfortably cool. This is the most popular time for tourists to visit Broome. You will find that all of the roads and attractions are usually open during the dry season.
The Wet Season
The wet season is a much quieter time for tourists in Broome. A lot of the attractions are closed during this time. The weather during the wet season is hot and humid with temperatures ranging between 25 and 34 degrees Celsius. The wet season brings many short and heavy downpours of rain. As well as thunderstorms and monsoonal activity between January and March.
There are many things to do in Broome, whether you want a guided tour or you prefer to do your own thing. One of the most popular attractions is Cable Beach, Broome’s main beach. You can also enjoy camel rides, helicopter tours, the crocodile park, Chinatown and countless natural wonders.
If you feel like treating yourself, a great way to see Broome is to travel by luxury air-conditioned 4WD. A 4WD tour Broome is led by a qualified driver and guide. Your guide will have extensive knowledge and experience of the area ensuring that you will enjoy your 4x4 tour in safety and comfort.
A 4x4 Broome tour is one of the best ways to see this beautiful area. You can discover Broome’s multicultural history and experience its indigenous culture up close. Not only this, but you will also witness spectacular natural attractions such as Cable Beach, the Boab Prison Tree, amazing gorges, Chinatown and the Staircase to the Moon.
Besides the weather, there may be other factors which influence the time you choose to visit Broome. For example, during the wet season potentially dangerous jellyfish are present at some of the beaches, such as Cable Beach. Swimming is not recommended during this time. However, there are some beaches further north which are safe all year round.
The tropical climate and weather in Broome make it a very popular destination for overseas tourists and Australian’s alike. Many Australian’s like to escape the cold winters further south by spending this time in Broome. This means that during the dry season, Broome is very busy and some may prefer to visit when it’s quiet (during the wet season). If you holiday in Broome during the wet season you may want to consider the vast differences in weather and the possibility that many attractions may not be accessible or available.
In the end it really depends on how you want to spend your holiday. Do you want to sit back, relax and enjoy the quite? Or are you looking for adventure and guided tours; or simply to witness the many natural attractions that Broome has to offer?
