Peter Bol takes Broome

Slow down to Broometime with an Olympic runner

Back to Broometime

The fastest 800m runner in Australian history knows that he needs to take it a bit slower sometimes. Peter Bol, athlete extraordinaire, ventured out to Broome to take in the sights and enjoy life at a slower pace - in Broometime. Check out Peter’s itinerary for some of the most stunning locations in Broome.

In Peter's own words

"Running is one of the most freeing things in my life, but I can’t be going flat out forever. I need to step away from training and competing from time to time and focus on what’s important - family, friends, mental attitude. Exploring Broome was the perfect way for me to recharge and reset."

Broome Courthouse Markets

Every Saturday morning, the Broome Courthouse gardens come to life for the weekly Markets. The beautiful, heritage-listed setting is home to up to 100 creative stalls at times - the perfect place to see the best of Broome’s local products in one place.

Gantheaume Point Rock Pools

When the mercury starts to rise, Gantheaume Point is the place to be. With a variety of rock pools that offer something for every ability, there’s stunning views of the sea and coastline on offer while you cool off.

Town Beach

The advantage of Broome being on a peninsula is that you can enjoy both the sunrise and sunset. Town Beach is the best location to catch the skies brightening and spend the early morning.

From the Host

"I’ve loved Broome as long as I’ve been here and, from being a local artist to organising events for the annual Chinatown Festival, I’m passionate about showcasing the best of the town. I want all my guests to experience the beauty that Broome has to offer."

Lush tropical gardens

The stunning Broome Beach House is complemented by a full tropical garden, offering a shady respite from the heat of the sun during the day.

Dive in for a swim

Enjoy the beautiful pool in the backyard for an easy way to cool off. The beach isn’t far but the convenience of a huge pool in the backyard is perfect for any traveller who likes a dip any time of day.

Set up in the sun

Make yourself comfortable on the sunlit porch and spend a relaxed morning with a book, newspaper or simply your beverage of choice.
