Broome on the north Western Australian coastline – Its history is a history in which you will lose yourself and want to learn more. Around 1861 Broome entered ton a new chapter in Broome's history book. The ‘Pearl Oyster’ named Pinctada maxima was discovered in Roebuck Bay and apparently turned out to be the largest pearl shell in the world. Over the next 20 plus years the shallow waters was ravaged for the Oyster by 100’s of international and local divers. The history is one you should study upon 1st day in Broome and let’s say start in Broome’s Chinatown a place to start exploring the colourful history of Broome.
