The college is an oasis in the Kimberley with private rooms, a swimming pool, recreation rooms, sports facilities, study areas and landscaped gardens.
Broome Residential College is a modern facility with all the comforts of home for your children. The college accommodation includes purpose built junior dorms, a state of the art recreation hall, swimming pool and full-size basketball court.
Comfortable, spacious and beautifully designed, each room is air-conditioned and complete with study desks and storage. Senior dorms have their own bath and laundry facilities. Supervisors are in every dorm and dorms are cleaned daily by professional cleaners.
Our accommodation is divided into male and female dorms, with junior and senior dorms. Male students are never permitted into female student’s rooms and vice versa.
