With a world-famous natural landmark like Cable Beach to look forward to only a 7 kilometre drive from town, it's no wonder that Broome on Western Australia's north-western tip attracts thousands of visitors from all over the world every year. Doubling as a high-demand supplier to the world's pearling industry, business and tourism meet together here over Broome's pristine white sand beaches and clear blue waters, and a rental car is the easiest way to see it all.

Broome is a 2.5 hour flight from Perth and a further 10 minutes into town from Broome airport. With a host of leading car rental companies present in the region, hiring your choice of vehicle and heading off independently into this natural wonderland leads you to memorable experiences at every turn. Whether it's a camel ride along Cable Beach at Sunset, a drive out to mudflats to watch the Staircase to the Moon reflected after the full moon, a 3 kilometre day trip to the sparse beauty of Gantheume Point to examine for yourself the 230 million year-old dinosaur footprints in the reef, or simply into the town centre to enjoy the relaxed, multicultural mix of Broome's nightlife, a rental car gives you the freedom to explore as you desire.
Broome's wonders are also perfect for exploration via a rented 4WD, which can take you to a host of isolated lakes, beaches and landscapes that remain some of the most unseen in Australia's tourist industry. With an average summer temperature of 32 degrees celsius, travelling this region in a car rental can be done is as much or as little comfort as you please.
