Cable Beach Caravan Park Review

Our first trip to Broome in 2015 was spent at Cable Beach Caravan Park, before we headed to Cape Leveque and The Gibb River Road. We loved the park, and had no hesitation in booking it again just recently. We spent 4 nights there again this year,  and our opinion hasn’t changed; its a fantastic place to stay.

I'll be the first to admit I'm often not much of a fan of Caravan Parks (I much prefer bush camping), but in locations like Broome you don't have much choice, and this one is fantastic.

Location

The fact that the caravan park is only a 5 minute walk to Cable Beach, or a 1 minute drive is a huge part of its attraction for us. Cable beach is magic, and being able to pop down any time we want in a matter of minutes is awesome. It’s also away from the old part of Broome, and is primarily where other tourists are, making it a nice relaxed holiday location.

Every afternoon we'd head down and enjoy the sunset in the 4WD

Prices

In 2018, we paid $52 per night for a powered site. The unpowered sites were only a couple of bucks a night less, and knowing how much shade the sites get and how useless our solar would be I opted to pay the extra. Not exactly cheap, but this is Broome after all.

Amenities

The amenities are nice, and simple. Things are clean, showers are reasonable and the overall condition is good. Its certainly not stunning, but rates well. There’s plenty of hot water and pressure, everything is clean and usable.

There's a nice pool (although it was freezing in May) and tiny playground and the usual laundries, clothes lines etc.

Decent sized sites, lots of shade and a very relaxed atmosphere

Whats nearby

There really isn't much nearby, except Cable Beach. That’s fine though, as you can drive into Broome in about 10 minutes anyway, and who needs anything nearby when you are on holidays?!

What’s nice about it?

Only after looking at the map on the second visit did I realise that the park actually has nearly 500 camp sites. Its massive, but it doesn’t feel like it is. The sites are a decent size, there are more beautiful shady trees than you can poke a stick at and everything is well kept. It’s not new, but its in good condition and makes you feel comfortable, relaxed and at home.

I have many fond memories of relaxing at camp under the trees, in perfect temperature with the sun shining ever so slightly through the branches. Cable Beach Caravan Park will continue to be our place to stop and unwind when in Broome; its a great spot.
