The town of Broome was established as a pearling port in the 1880s and has had a romantic and oftern flamboyant history.

As a result of the pearling industry Broome's Indigenous Community was joined by nationalities including Chinese, Euorpeans, Japanese and Malays.  This cultural melting pot has influenced the distinctive character and charm of Broome.  Pearling remains one of the town's major industries with local South Sea Pearls being lauded as the best in the world.
