In Broome, see Anastasia’s Pool, a natural rock pool which is part of the history of the town and tells a touching story.
The pool was modified by a former lighthouse keeper, to make it easy for his wife, Anastasia, to access.
Anastasia suffered badly from arthritis and found relief in the warm water of the Indian Ocean which filled the pool at high tide.
Anastasia’s Pool is on the north side of Gantheaume Point which is well worth a visit for its dinosaur footprints.
Thought to be 130 million years old, the footprints can be seen at very low tides.
You can find out the times of the tides by contacting the Broome Visitor Centre.
Anastasia’s Pool and Gantheaume Point are a short drive from Broome’s town centre.Visit Website
