The Staircase to the Moon is a natural spectacle that can be observed in Broome between March and October each year.
This natural phenomenon is best seen from Roebuck Bay in Broome, when the full moon rises over the exposed mudflats at extremely low tide and creates a beautiful optical illusion of stairs reaching to the moon.
Located near Broome, a beachside town in Western Australia, the natural wonder that is the Staircase to the Moon emerges into vision when very low tides enable the reflection of the full moon off mudflats.
When this occurs, an illusion results in which a staircase appears to extend upwards to the moon that is blue and bright.
This is an amazing sight with an atmosphere that is enhanced by performers and night markets in Broome.
