Emma Blyth is a West Australian artist well known for her bright, vibrant creations that reflect Australian landscapes from the rugged outback to the picturesque beaches of the south west
Krim Benterrak was born in Marrakech, Morocco, and studied at the Ecole Superieure Des Beaux Arts in Paris. His artwork showcases expressionist and colourist techniques extending to a range of genres from landscapes to still-life and the nude.
Georgia moved from California to Australia in 1984 to help her husband develop a Cotton Farm in the Outback. She painted as a creative outlet and a way to cope with the isolation and loneliness of a new lifestyle in a strange but fascinating new country. She now resides in the picturesque wine growing area of Mudgee, NSW, and travels to share her passion for art and teach.
James is a local Broome artist well known for his vibrant whimsical paintings, which reflect his love for Broome’s history and the vibrant colours of the Kimberley’s spectacular sceneries. James can personalize your painting by adding you and your family into one of his creations.
Perth based Douglas Kirsop celebrates the Western Australian landscape in his oil and watercolour paintings. Douglas has travelled to the north many times to paint the Pilbara, Kimberley, Murchison and the Northern Territory.
Leon was born in the dusty outback town of Meekatharra in 1949 where his parents ran the Meekatharra Hotel. His great love for the outback of Australia shows clearly in his work and his imaginary town of Widjimorphup features prominently. In 1995 he undertook perhaps the largest Australian touring exhibition by a single artist with his "Tiggy Puggenheim Collection". Leon's work features heavily throughout the Resort.
From March to October witness a breathtaking natural phenomenon known as Staircase to the Moon. It is caused by the rising of the full moon reflecting off the exposed mudflats at extremely low tide - creating a beautiful optical illusion of stairs reaching to the moon.
The Staircase to the Moon in Broome is often complemented by the local markets at Town Beach. Here you can sample local fare, purchase crafts and delight in talented local entertainers.

Thoroughbred horse racing in Broome has evolved out of the dust and the Broome Turf Club has arguably become one of the most progressive race clubs in Australia, whilst still retaining a well loved country atmosphere.
The Broome Turf Club is carved out of bush land at picturesque Gantheaume Point, just a stones throw from the turquoise waters of Cable Beach. Today the Broome Turf Club has transformed from its rustic ‘pindan’ roots into a relaxing, shady oasis. A day at the Broome races is an experience unlike most others, and one that many international tourists seek to repeat. A highlight of the tourism calendar in Broome, it is a place where members of the multi-cultural community mingle with visitors from far and wide. The race season culminates in the highly anticipated Broome Cup Carnival.
For 43 years during the full moon of September, Shinju Matsuri has celebrated Broome through 10 days of events. The Opening Ceremony, Float Parade and Mardi Gras, Closing Ceremony and Fireworks are just some of the family friendly free entertainment. Broome’s multi-cultural history and magnificent venues are showcased in all events, and talented local artists perform throughout the festival.
