"Great place to invest"

Cable Beach is now virtually a suburb of Broome and is only 7 kms from the town centre. Being so close to Broome CBD is a bonus for this town which is one of the most popular tourist beaches in WA. Cable beach has very varied tides and offers over 22 kms of white sandy beach and very blue water, with camel rides being popular with locals and tourists alike. Cable Beach has a shopping centre nearby and younger students can attend the Cable Beach Primary School and travel into Broome to attend high school. Naturally the beach is a big draw card to the area and most of the employment in the area is in the resorts with tourist season being very busy. The climate is hot and humid with a wet and a dry season and the area has its fair share of tropical cyclones. It is around this time that swimmers should take great care as the deadly box jellyfish makes its appearance from November to the end of March. People can also gain work in Broome or out in the mines and make Cable beach their base but be warned property prices in this area are very high in comparison to other areas.

UserCB Seems this review is by a real estate agent who doesn't live in Broome. If you would like to invest in this area of Broome you will need no less than $1.5mil. I would suggest you would get better rewards investing somewhere else as no one could afford to rent your property. As it is rent is skyhigh making it unaffordable for families and singles alike to get ahead. Tourism has taken a downturn as so many people can travel overseas at the 3rd of the cost of staying in a hotel in Broome for a week. Most of Broome's employment is not in the hospitality industy. Alot of backpackers and travellers come for the season which suits both them and the hotels. There are 4 Primary schools and 2 high schools. Cable Beach IS a suburb of Broome and has been for the last 25+ years. Roebuck Estate is now well established on the northside of the airport. Broome North is 4km out of town and land prices are out of reach for most. As for rougher areas of Broome, this is a farce. Every town has their bad apples and such a generalisation is a shame.

"Will always be a sought after suburb"

Lovely area of Broome, gets the cooling seabreezes, no sandflies, minimal mozzies, friendly and pretty safe neighbourhood and with Broome set to expand so rapidly, this area will always be a sought after area to buy into being established and in a great location to the alternatives in Roebuck estate, the new Broome North and some of the rougher areas of Old Broome.
