The breathtaking natural phenomenon known as Staircase to the Moon is caused by the rising of the full moon reflecting off the exposed mudflats at extremely low tide – creating a beautiful optical illusion of stairs reaching to the moon. Staircase to the Moon is a natural attraction and its visibility varies in strength depending on weather, sunset, moonrise and the tide. The Staircase to the Moon in Broome is often complemented by the local markets at Town Beach. Here you can sample local fare, purchase crafts and delight in talented local entertainers.
