Established in 1988, the major aims of the Observatory are Environmental, Education and Research. Located on the shores of beautiful Roebuck Bay, visitors will share the amazing story of Broome's migratory shorebirds from Siberia. The North West is regarded as the most significant viewing site in Australia for shorebirds and the fourth most significant in the world. In excess of 800,000 birds use the area annually.
