Broome is a fairly spread out town for its size but everything is relatively close. Habitat Resort is a 6 minute drive from Chinatown, which is the main CBD for Broome, and 6 minutes drive from Cable Beach. Habitat is only a four minute drive to the Woolworth Supermarket at the Boulevard Shopping Centre.
Unfortunately we do not have a shuttle bus service and we are no longer serviced by the Town Bus Service.
However there are lots of other transport options from hiring a push bike, striding out on a scooter, get yourself a hire car, or catch a taxi. See here for our guide on getting around Broome.
