The Resort has an annual Artist In Residence program showcasing the work of local and acclaimed Australian artists. The artists feature on the Club Boardwalk and work on a piece that is donated to charity.
Staircase To The Moon
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 44 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.
