PharMEDucation provides quality seminars on medicines and medication management for pharmacists, dentists, nurse practitioners, medical practitioners, nurses and allied health professionals. Join us in Broome in August 2017 for the first ever PEARL Pharmacotherapy Update.
Broome – the pearling capital of Australia, is the western gateway to the Kimberley wilderness, home to world famous Cable Beach sunsets and the natural phenomenon of the Staircase to the Moon. With easy access from most major Australian cities, it won’t take you long to fall in love with this tropical oasis with its striking contrasts in colour and culture. Where the vibe is very relaxed but where there is also so much to engage the senses.
Affectionately known as the ‘pearl of the north’, it’s the home of South Sea pearls – among the largest and most coveted commercially harvested cultured pearls in the world. Their discovery in the 1800s fuelled a mass migration almost as epic as the gold rush. Japanese, Filipino and Malay pearl divers arrived in droves seeking their fortune, creating a melting pot of cultures that makes Broome the multicultural town it is today.
Broome is also blessed with 22 kilometres of beautiful white sand and turquoise water at Cable Beach and striking rust-red cliffs and ancient dinosaur footprints at Gantheaume Point.
Our conference is timed perfectly to coincide with the full moon at nearby Roebuck Bay. Watch as at low tide she performs the most awe-inspiring illusion known as the Staircase to the Moon.
When not in conference, participants can witness first-hand how pearls are cultured on a cruise to a local pearl farm, then immerse yourself in the romantic tales of the original pearl luggers, or pick up a memento of your trip in the dazzling pearl showrooms of Chinatown.
This is also where you’ll find another of Broome’s gems – Sun Pictures, the oldest operating outdoor cinema in the world. Be sure to wander into the neighbouring galleries and admire the works of some of the Kimberley’s most celebrated contemporary and Aboriginal artists.
There is so much to see and do in and around Broome with the region offering so many unique, ‘once in a lifetime’ activities. Whether you are a thrill seeker, adventurer, culture vulture, water lover or sun seeker you’ll be able to combine your ongoing professional development and education with an exceptional leisure experience.
