Who are Broome’s most famous faces? Online robot tool ChatGPT ranks the Kimberley town’s most prominent
From athletes and movie stars to historical figures and national Aboriginal icons, there are a swathe of famous faces who have called Broome home.
But who is the most highly regarded of them all?
The Broome Advertiser asked the artificial intelligent tool Chat GPT — or an “online robot” — who the Kimberley town’s most famous people in history were and these were the results.
“Broome, a town in Western Australia, is known for its rich history, multicultural heritage, and unique natural beauty. While it may not be home to a large number of globally renowned celebrities, there are several notable individuals associated with Broome,” Chat GPT said.

During his time with the Bulldogs, Hamling played a crucial role in their 2016 premiership triumph, where the team won the AFL Grand Final.
