Staircase to the Moon

A natural treasure to Broome, this phenomenon occurs for three days during the full moon period, from March to October. Reflections from the moon stretch across the mud flats on very low tides creating the magnificent illusion of a long silver staircase. Tricky to photograph well, but breathtaking in person.

Do & See

Broome is the gateway to the spectacular Kimberley Region, one of the world’s last frontiers. The town is surrounded by unspoilt wilderness of rugged gorges, waterfalls and aboriginal rock art — a special place for the native peoples of the area, who comprise approximately 40 percent of the population and represent more than 30 language groups.
