6 Jul 2020 to 2 Oct 2020 Monthly Event
The Staircase to the Moon is a natural phenomenon observed in Broome Western Australia between April and October only. It is caused by the rising of a full moon reflecting on the exposed mudflats at extremely low tide creating a beautiful optical illusion of a staircase reaching up to the moon.
The Staircase Markets are held at the Town Beach Reserve on Robinson Street over the two nights of the full moon May – October. Wander around the colourful local stalls under the stars, sample the tastes of Broome cuisine, listen to local live music and take in the spectacular Staircase to the Moon. Bring the family and enjoy a meal on the grass – burgers, pizza, Thai, laksa, satays, fish and chips, Egyptian food/kebabs/falafels, Chinese, Greek, fruit smoothies, ice cream, donuts, hot dogs, coffee and more. There will be stalls with jewellery, craft, clothing, confectionery, local mango products, soaps, incense, candles, photography, homewares and more can be perused at a leisurely pace in the cool evening.
