Accommodation at the BBO
WAKING UP at Broome Bird Observatory offers a unique opportunity to experience the magnificent wildlife of Roebuck Bay amid its beauty and serenity.
Staying at Broome Bird Observatory provides the best opportunity to experience the diverse and wonderful birds and other wildlife of Roebuck Bay and the adjacent bush and plains. You are able to wake up in the bush and take an early morning stroll down to the bay or along one of our excellent trails, as well as participate in the daily evening “Bird Log” and experience the beautifully clear and starry night skies.
Acommodation to suit every taste and budget
We offer a variety of accommodation, including a self-contained cottage as well as single, double and family units in the accommodation block (linens are provided but you need to bring your own towels). Our small campground provides a peaceful escape from the hustle and bustle of Broome caravan parks. Amenities include toilets, hot showers, BBQ area, and our “Shadehouse”. The Shadehouse is a fully-equipped bush kitchen/dining shelter with a large gas stove, several refrigerators, and plenty of seating. It also provides excellent views of our birdbaths, which can be enjoyed at any time of day.
Camping and accommodation descriptions and fees

All of our campsites are un-powered. Because of the small size of, and narrow access to, the campground, it can be difficult to manoeuver caravans longer than 16 feet into our standard campsites. However, we do have an overflow campsite that can generally accommodate caravans up to 20 feet long.
- Camping fees are $15 per person, per night.
The chalet is a fully self-contained rustic cottage with two bedrooms (each with two single beds), a living/kitchen area, and an ensuite bathroom with shower and toilet. The kitchen is fully equipped with a refrigerator, gas stove and oven, and all basic cooking and serving implements. The chalet comfortably sleeps four adults, and an additional two can be accommodated on the fold-out sofa. We require a minimum two-night stay for the Chalet.
