Staircase to the Moon 2019

Staircase to the Moon in Broome 2019

The Staircase to the Moon is a natural phenomenon caused by the rising of a full moon reflecting off the exposed mudflats in Roebuck Bay at extremely low tide, to create a beautiful optical illusion of a stairway reaching to the moon. This spectacular sight occurs from March through to November.

Plan your stay in Broome around these dates or book a "Staircase to the Moon" Broome holiday package.
