Birdwatching around Broome
Dedicated to the conservation of migratory shorebirds, the Broome Bird Observatory receives visits from an estimated 150 000 birds each year and is one of the best spots in the world to see some of these well-travelled species. The track out to the observatory can be corrugated, but most 2WDs should be able to make it during the dry season. There is a great range of half-day and full-day wildlife tours, including one specially to see the yellow chat. You can camp or stay in cabins at the observatory, or just go out for the day.
