A message from the Rangers - Accessing our beaches

Published on 08 June 2021


The Shire of Broome would like to remind the community of its responsibilities when attending our beaches, with high patronage currently given the influx of people to town.

Broome has amazing beaches that are there for residents and visitors to enjoy, but the rules are in place to ensure the safety of everyone.

Broome is a dog-friendly community, but not everyone welcomes your pooch’s attention. Dog owners are reminded that they must keep their pets under control, even while they are in an off-leash area.

With the race season upon us, visitors to Cable Beach near Gantheaume Point will notice horses exercising from 5am-10am each day. During this time period, dogs must be kept on a lead for the safety of the horses and their riders.

The speed limit for vehicles driving on both Cable Beach both near Gantheaume Point and north of the rocks is 15km/h – please stick to this speed for everyone’s safety.

Finally, please pick up your rubbish when leaving the beach.

Rangers will be visible at our beaches, with education the first response – however infringements will be issued to people blatantly breaking the rules. Signage is present at vehicle access points for more information.
