Cable Beach Turtle Nesting Season - October to February
To limit the impact of vehicles on nesting turtles in Broome, the Cable Beach north vehicle access ramp (adjacent to the Cable Beach Amphitheatre) will be CLOSED at night to vehicles throughout the turtle nesting season from 8pm to 6am, 1 October 2016 to 28 February 2017.
Cable Beach will also be closed to vehicles two hours either side of the high tide when it is 9m or greater.
The gate installed at the Cable Beach Amphitheatre will be locked closed during the temporary closures. Amphitheatre vehicle access is permitted at all other times.
The Shire of Broome appreciates the community's co-operation in assisting to protect marine turtles on Cable Beach.
