Shinju Matsuri Festival: 2 - 10 September 2017

Broome's annual Shinju Matsuri festival (Japanese for 'Festival of the Pearl'), began in 1970 as a culmination of 3 cultural festivals: Japanese Obon Matsuri, Malaysian Hari Merdeka and the Chinese Hang Seng. Shinju Matsuri rekindles the excitement and romance of Broome’s early days of being a world-renowned producer of South Sea Pearls when the Japanese, Chinese, Malay, Koepangers, Filipino and Europeans flocked to Broome from the late 1800’s to be a part of this prosperity. By recognizing the many different cultures that have existed harmoniously in Broome for over a century, these festivals showcase Broome’s natural beauty, unique history, and diverse character to the outside world.

Highlights of the festival include the Pearl Harvest Party (2 Sep), Float Parade and Mardi Gras (3 Sep), Jetty to Jetty Trail (6 - 8 Sep), Sunset Long Table Dinner (9 Sep) and Broome Harvest (10 Sep).

Shinju Matsuri will tempt your senses with an exciting whirlwind of colour, sound, taste and smell as the community shares this beautiful locale with the world and the people who call it home.

We are offering two boutique accommodation packages staying at The Billi and The Pearle in Broome, including tickets to the Sunset Long Table Dinner. We can also assist with other exciting touring options such as Sunset Camel Safaris, Turtle Kayaks and Trike Tours to make your visit even more memorable.

For those with a little more time, we can suggest a number of unique extensions, such as 'glamping' on a working pearl farm, or perhaps a city stopover in Perth. Let us know your requirements and we can tailor the perfect package for you!
