Cable Beach: 1-Hour Sunset Camel Ride

1. Cable Beach: 1-Hour Sunset Camel Ride

Meet the gorgeous camels of Broome, and give them a pat while the staff take a photo for you with your camera! On this 1-hour activity you’ll see the sun set over the Indian Ocean as you ride on a camel specially chosen for you. After everyone has arrived, there will be a safety introduction provided by Alison Bird, the longest-serving camel ride operator in Broom. She’ll share her experiences with camels throughout the West Australian outback.  Watch as she shows you how to mount and dismount your camel. Alison will then choose a camel specifically for you to ride. The staff will assist you in mounting the camel, and when everyone in the group is ready to go, the camel train makes its way to the water’s edge. Take in the fantastic views of the Indian Ocean, and listen as the staff tells you the story of the camel in Australia. Watch in awe as the sun sets over the ocean. Hand over your camera to the staff for them to take some photographs as you enjoy your walk along the beach. Towards the end of the ride, you’ll be reminded about how to safely dismount. After you’re back on firm ground you’ll get to treat the camel with a well-deserved carrot.
