Staircase to the Moon 11-13 May 2017

All Events

Witness a breathtaking natural phenomenon known as the Staircase to the Moon. It 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. It occurs along the coastline at Onslow, Dampier, Cossack, Point Samson Peninsula, Hearson Cove, Port Hedland and Broome. The Staircase to the Moon in Broome is often complemented by local night markets at Town Beach. Here you can sample local fare, purchase crafts and delight in talented local entertainers.

Times vary for each location, so make sure to check with the local Visitor Centre for up to the minute information.
