Interesting visit
Oct. 2021 • Family
We rode here from our hotel in Cable Beach. We enjoyed the types of headstones (we couldn't read the details). The grounds are well maintained. Well worth the visit.

Intriguing & historical cemetery, with Chinese, Indigenous sections
Jul. 2021
Very sad & disappointed that all glass & other breakable flowers holders/receptacles have been destroyed!! Awful vandalism, vandals must be severely punished! Utterly nasty.
Otherwise a worthwhile place to visit & look at the amazing & historical places of rest.

Ive got a bit of a thing that I like to visit cemeteries that are different or old.Got my husband to drop me off whilst he did something else and walked through the cemetery.Beautiful headstones and interesting history.Lots of different ones next door to each other to visit but the Japanese one had the most beauty.

Good for a visit.

We went to both this and the Chinese one next door, beautifully maintained, of course you can’t read the headstones unless you read Japanese. Interesting to know the history though.

Beautiful cemetry
Jun. 2021
Such a beautiful and sobering place of rest. We paid our respects after our walking tour of Broome, learning so much more about the history, culture and the sacrifices made in the pearling industry.

Eerie and fascinating

The Japanese presence in Broome is of long duration and this cemetery gives you a feel for that. The tombstones are beautiful and austere. The stories of the pearl divers are fascinating. You can also visit the Chinese and Muslin Malay cemeteries which are right nearby.

I had a look here, but there isn't much to see here except for headstones with Japanese writing on it.

Such a relevant part of Broome history - interesting to wander around here. Can be a bit hot so I would go early in the day.

Sombre and Respectful
Sep. 2020
Sombre and well maintained cemetery showing how many of the pearl divers died so young in the towns history - a good glimpse of the past.
