Its the best time of year in Broome and Eighty Mile Beach for kids to get onto the beach and do some sand sculpting, or create a flock of colourful shorebirds and other school holiday activities being run by Parks and Wildlife Service.

On Saturday May 4 at 5.45pm, Roebuck Bay will light up with giant illuminated puppets, storytelling, dance and original music in one of Theatre Kimberley’s biggest collaborative works. Bring friends and family, a picnic, something to sit on and enjoy the event of the year!
The Shorebird Quest is a co-creation between Theatre Kimberley, the Broome Bird Observatory, Parks and Wildlife Services’ Yawuru rangers, Nyamba Buru Yawuru Country managers and local schools.
The puppets are only half of the Shorebird Quest – the other is incredible original live music from magical musical director Jaime Jackett, a bird nerd and musician originally from Canada, co-written with Hayden Kutze. WoW!!
Follow Curtis the Curlew on his migration from Siberia to Broome through a fusion of Yawuru Country knowledge, musical theatre and puppetry.
This project is made possible with support from the Australian Government’s Building Better Regions Fund; the Western Australian Government’s State NRM Program, supported by Royalties for Regions; Healthway, promoting the Act-Belong-Commit message, and the Broome Community.

Coastal Gardens – A Planting Guide for Broome provides advice on growing a waterwise garden that benefits your wallet and Broome’s coastal waters. The book is online and suitable for smartphones.
The local coastal plants (endemics) in the book, thrive in Broome soils and climate. Most are cyclone resistant, require less water than introduced plants and resistant to tropical pests. Local coastal plants have defence mechanisms to cope with common pests, thereby require fewer pesticides than introduced species. Less pesticides used in your garden, means less chemicals entering Broome’s coastal waters via roadside stormwater drains. The book also includes the plants to avoid – with many of the weeds we see in Broome, escaped garden exotics.
The booklet was launched on February 8th, 2019 with books available from Rangelands NRM office at Lotteries House, 257 Cable Beach Road, Broome. Gold coin donations welcome 🙂
This project is funded by State NRM with support from Royalties for Regions and Rangelands NRM through funding from the Australian Government’s National Landcare Program.
