Resilience and Recovery Plan


In 2020, key organisations and leaders in the West Kimberley collaborated to formulate the 3-Year Broome COVID-19 Recovery Plan in an effort to offset the financial impact of COVID-19 and associated travel restrictions.

The Shire of Broome partnered with Nyamba Buru Yawuru, the West Kimberley Alliance, Broome Chamber of Commerce and Industry, and Cruise Broome to develop the plan.

Input was also sought from other stakeholders including the Kimberley Development Commission, Regional Development Australia Kimberley, and Office of Northern Australia.

The group pledged to use a united voice to seek Government investment into key projects to stimulate the local economy.

This document details the projects completed in Broome over the last few years and shows the shovel-ready initiatives that are seeking Government funding to stimulate the local economy.
