2021 Staircase to the Moon Broome Dates

Broome’s ‘Staircase to the Moon’ is an iconic Kimberley event visible only three nights every month, when the full moon rises across Roebuck Bay’s exposed flood plains to create the illusion of a staircase leading from the beach directly to the full moon. Check out 2021’s Staircase to the Moon dates detailing when you can see this incredible spectacle for yourself, and perhaps combine it with a Kimberley cruise.

The full effect of the staircase is best viewed from either the Mangrove Hotel or the Town Beach, which – not to be confused with Cable Beach – is located in town at the end of Robinson Street. Town Beach’s Staircase Markets operate on ‘staircase nights’ and offer plenty of local colour and vibrancy. Peruse local stalls offering handmade jewellery, crafts, clothing and homewares, before sitting back under the stars to enjoy the sounds of local musicians whilst sampling the tastes of Broome cuisine. If you’re staying out at Cable Beach it will be necessary to head into town to view the spectacle and there’s myriad transport options available.
