Gantheaume Point Information
Walk in the footsteps of dinosaurs at Gantheaume Point, near Broome. Here, preserved in the reef rock for over 125 million years, are the footprints of long-extinct dinosaurs and a few plant fossils too, making it one of the best paleontological sites in the world.
Situated just five minutes drive from Broome, the footprints are only visible at low tide. However, you can view plaster casts of the dinosaur tracks embedded at the top of the cliff if the tide is high. Check tide times at the visitor centre in Broome before your head out to the point.
Just a short stroll to the northern side of Gantheaume Point and you'll find a touching piece of local history at Anastasia's Pool. This natural spa pool was lovingly modified by one of the early lighthouse keepers, making its therapeutic warm water easily accessible for his wife, who suffered terribly with arthritis.
The most thrilling way to reach Gantheaume Point is by zooming across the mudflats of Roebuck Bay on a hovercraft tour from Broome, then taking a guided walk among ancient footprints. Along the way, you can view coastal scenery, where red cliffs meet the turquoise waters of the Indian Ocean.
