Definitely glad I checked out the Courthouse Markets on Saturday morning however I'm not sure what I was expecting. A lot of the same type of things for sale - perhaps comparing with markets in Perth was where I went wrong. There's heaps of food truck/trailer options though - I had the best mango coconut smoothie I've ever had -... More

It was very HOT and HUMID but worth the early morning trip! I was able to fulfill all of my souvenir requests. I was visiting for business from the USA. Lovely people and crafts!

We wanted something to do to pass the time while we waited for our flight home. We came to the courthouse markets, not expecting much and finding not much, so we weren't disappointed in that respect. Probably because of the season, there weren't many stalls and the ones that were there were, sorry to say, hellishly exoensive (we thought) for... More

Lots of good stuff avaiable but the raffle is a bit dodgey. Stalls have a sign indicating a raffle ticket for every $10 spent. On making a purchase the tickets weren't given to my partner, had to ask for them. Locals didn't seem to have to ask. Also only given 1 ticket no matter how much my partner spent. Only... More

Wander around the stalls and pick some hand crafted jewellery to remember Broome and the Kimberleys. Enjoy local music and meet visitors from all over the world. Love feeling the relaxed atmosphere of "Broome time "

These markets are awesome. I ended up getting quite a bit of jewellery from here and so glad I did. It was super cheap and I think the quality of the Pearls are pretty good for fresh water Pearls. Really interesting markets and wished I was here longer to visit them again.

I enjoyed the variety at this market-clothes, food, coffee, and artsy things. Several of the tour operators have tables here so you can talk with them before you book...very helpful. There is a large variety of food carts. A pleasant way to spend part of the morning.

Dahlia Designs sell at this market and the jewelry is just exquisite and features amongst the pieces local icons such as Stairway to the Stars necklets and the Boab tree bracelets and earrings. Well priced too. Great work.
