Traveling can be a thirsty past time, especially up here in the tropics where its essential to replace fluids for your health and well being. I have listed a few of Broome’s best places to wet your whistle.
Just in case you were interested .. Many years ago in England , pub frequenters had a whistle baked into the rim, or handle, of their ceramic cups. When they needed a refill, they used the whistle to get some service. ‘Wet your whistle’ is the phrase inspired by this practice.
Matso’s is practically an institution in Broome, with its corrugated walls, wide verandahs and garden tables all overlooking the turquoise waters of Roebuck Bay. Located at 60 Hammersley Street, Matso’s is an idyllic place to wet your whistle, the craft beers are cold and tasty, the fish and chips are awesome, and the setting is priceless.

Located on Cable Beach Road, almost all the way to Cable Beach, Divers is a popular venue with tourists and locals alike.
