2025 Broome Staircase to the Moon Dates

Staircase Moon Broome dates

2025 Staircase to the Moon Dates (with moonrise times)

Often, our clients will ask how they can combine a Kimberley Cruise with one of  Broome’s most popular natural attractions, the famed Staircase to the Moon. Visible only three nights each month when the full moon rises over the exposed mudflats of Roebuck Bay, light reflected from the moon creates an illusion of a staircase from the beach rising directly to the full moon.

On ‘Staircase nights’, locals and travellers alike are drawn to the Roebuck Bay side of town – not to be confused with Cable Beach – to take in all the fun and festivities of the Town Beach Staircase Markets. The markets are full of local colour and vibrancy, with stalls offering homemade jewellery, arts and crafts, homewares and much more. Then, it’s time to sit back and enjoy the sounds of some of Broome’s best musicians while you sample the Tastes of Broome cuisine. 

The full effect of the staircase can be viewed Town Beach, which is located in town at the end of Robinson Street. Or, if you’re lucky enough to be staying at the Mangrove Hotel. you’ll be able to take in the staircase from the hotel’s stylish Bay Club. If you’re staying out at Cable Beach you will need to head into town to experience the staircase.

Check out the 2025 Staircase to the Moon dates below and ask us how you can combine your 2025 Kimberley Cruises with a stay in Broome during Staircase to the Moon.
