Human whale on Broome’s Cable Beach


Over 500 Broome locals and visitors (and several dogs) turned out on Sunday 29th July to form a human whale for an aerial photo on Broome’s beautiful Cable Beach to celebrate the arrival of the Kimberley’s humpback whales, the world’s largest population of  humpbacks.

Participants spelt out the words “Broome loves” and formed three whale shapes on the sand, joining hands and then waving as local photographers Annabelle Sandes and Rod Hartvigsen photographed them from a helicopter.  The photos are avaailable as a free download.
