Cruise control over passenger liners

Written on the 12 May 2017

A key cruise ship advocate in Broome believes the town may not lose any passenger ship visits despite a decision by Australia's largest ocean liner group to turn its back on WA and not use Fremantle as its base.

Over the past two years, the town has embraced the lucrative cruise ship industry with the formation of Cruise Broome through the Broome Chamber of Commerce and Industry.

The BCCI sub-committee is represented by local key stakeholders like the Shire of Broome and Kimberley Ports Authority and the Broome Visitor Centre.

The council has acknowledged the importance of the passenger ship visits by agreeing to give the BCCI $50,000 over three years to develop the local industry, along with $25,000 through the Kimberley Development Commission.
