Originally built in 1984 from brick work produced by the former local Pindan brick factory, Broome Time Accommodation started out as Cable Beach Resort and has since undergone many identity changes.
Every room comes fully equipped with a kitchen, coffee making facilities, refrigerator, utensils and dinnerware to make dinnertime a breeze should you just want a night in. You can also relax in air-conditioned comfort, with additional ceiling fans, a flat-screen TV and complimentary WiFi so you can keep up with the world.
In 2014, BroomeTime Art Gallery was opened to support local talent and provide a unique offering to guests staying at BroomeTime.
The gallery features a wide variety of Kimberley art, traditional and contemporary Indigenous paintings and artefacts, wood and boab nut carvings, hand crafted didgeridoos, books and gifts. It is a terrific opportunity to purchase unique and beautiful artworks directly from the artist, and hear the stories associated with the works.

Short St. Gallery is the premier and longest running Indigenous art gallery located in the heart of Chinatown in Broome. It is an old building (over 100 years) and is the last remaining house with a wind tunnel. It is an important part of the Aboriginal, Malay & Japanese history in Broome. The building has been operating as a gallery since 1998, and houses a comprehensive collection of indigenous contemporary artworks, presenting artists from all over Australia. We are the only member of the ACGA (Australian Commerical Galleries Association) in Broome.
Short St Gallery is also the agent for the Yulparija Artists from Bidyadanga, including Daniel Walbidi, Weaver Jack, Alma Webou, Donald Moko, Mary Meribida, Sally (Liki) Nanii, Bertha Linty, Jan Billycan, Margaret Baragurra, Lydia Balbal and many others. We also represent the following art centres in the Kimberly, Waringarri, Warmun, Warlayirti (Balgo), Mangkaja (Fitzroy Crossing), in the Pilbara Martumili. While in the APY and NG lands and Western Desert we represent Tjungu Palya, Spinifex Art Project, Ninuku Arts, Warakurna Arts, Tjanpi Desert Weavers, Ernabella Arts, Mimili Maku, Tjala Arts, Kayili Artists, Papulankutja Artists and Papunya Tula. In Arhemland we represent Buku-Larringay Mulka (Yirrkala) and Maningrida Arts, while in Tiwi Islands, we represent Jilamara, Tiwi Design and Ngaruwanajirri.
The gallery seeks to educate and proudly show the stylistic diversity of the different cultures which make up the Kimberley and Australia. From the saltwater to the freshwater, to the desert people, Short St. offers a glimpse at the extremely sophisticated dynamic landscape which is Australian art.
We wish to thank and acknowledge the contribution of the art centres who have provided many of the artist biographies and artwork stories. Short Street Gallery endeavours to purchase indigenous artworks from established and reputable community owned Art Centres. This ensures that artists are paid the market value for their work and the integrity and reputation of the artist is respected.
