Turtle Nesting Season Vehicle Access Closures

Cable Beach Turtle Nesting Season - October to March

To limit the impact of vehicles on nesting turtles in Broome, the Cable Beach north vehicle access ramp (adjacent to the Cable Beach Amphitheatre) was closed at night to vehicles throughout the turtle nesting season from 8pm to 6am, 1 October 2021 to 1 March 2022.

Cable Beach was also 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 was locked closed during the temporary closures. Amphitheatre vehicle access is permitted at all other times.

Penalties of up to $200 apply for anyone disregarding the beach closures under Shire of Broome Local Laws.

The Shire of Broome appreciates the community's co-operation in assisting to protect marine turtles on Cable Beach.
