In 2016-17, 106,000 Singaporeans visited WA and spent $259 million during their stay. Tourism Minister Paul Papalia adds, “Congratulations to everyone who has been involved in making the SilkAir charter flights become a reality. The State Government is focussed on bringing more visitors to Western Australia to boost our economy through visitor spend and create more jobs."

"Increasing aviation access into the State will help us achieve that goal. While the current deal with SilkAir is for four return trial flights, we are hopeful that the demand for the service will be high and lead the way for further services in the future. Tourism is vital for the State’s economy generating more than $10 billion a year through visitor spend and supporting 109,000 jobs. That’s why it is at the centre of the State Government’s plan to create jobs and further grow the economy.”

The pearling capital of Australia, Broome is the home to world famous Cable Beach sunsets and the natural phenomenon of the Staircase to the Moon. Broome is a tropical oasis of striking contrasts in colour and culture, where the vibe is very relaxed but there's so much to engage the senses.

With all the time saved from travelling, you can fully experience what this town has to offer, from pearling farms and well-preserved dinosaurs’ footprints, to camel rides along the beach and a view that could (almost) take you to the Moon. Broome will be the Instagram-worthy holiday and a perfect getaway from the city for your family.

From Asia to The Outback in 4 hours, that's got to be a good thing. One of the best holidays ive ever had, hope more people get to see this amazing piece of Australia.
I couldn't agree more. I love the idea of visiting this magical place and it is so close to Singapore. I hope the flights are not too expensive... keep to the low cost airline rates and everyone will flock there...as long as the accommodation is also affordable :-)
