STAIRCASE TO THE MOON

March to October

Between March and October each year, when conditions are just right, visitors to Broome in the North West region are treated to a natural spectacle - the Staircase to the Moon.

 

Staircase to the moon

 

The natural phenomenon of the Staircase to the Moon occurs when the full moon rises over the exposed mudflats of Roebuck Bay at extremely low tide creating the optical illusion of a staircase reaching for the moon.

 

The staircase occurs three nights each month from March to October.

 
For more information on Staircase to the Moon, visit the Broome or Australia's North West page.
