Music and Entertainment

What better thing to do in Broome than laze in the tropical gardens of the Courthouse Markets to free entertainment and music. Or sit down under the stars at the magical Town Beach Night Markets to lip-smacking food, market stalls and infectious live music.

Every weekend from May until September at the Courthouse Markets and Thursday night markets local and visiting musicians play a range of music from the balcony of the historic Cable House (Courthouse markets) or the recently purpose built stage at Town Beach for the Thursday Night and Staircase Markets.

If its meeting friends or entertaining the family you will be humming to the tunes of live musician at the Thursday Night and Staircase Markets.
