In 1894 work had begun to construct a Tramway to carry Mother of Pearl Shell from Streeter & Male Jetties to the Goods Shed.  


The boom of the Mother of Pearl Industry secured the tramway line and it became a catalyst to the growth of Broome.


The Broome Tramway was used by all and became part of the Broome way of life.    

We offer daily tours from the Visitors Centre Mon - Fri 10am and 11am, listen to untold stories of the history of Broome and learn about the original tramway.
