Staircase To The Moon, Broome

4.4
#14 of 43 in Outdoors in Broome
A stunning natural phenomenon, Staircase To The Moon is the result of a receding tide and a rising moon. The moon hangs huge over calm waters and looks almost dreamlike framed in the night sky. The phenomenon does not happen every night, but is as predictable as the stages of the moon, so every Staircase To The Moon night is accompanied by a food and craft market on the beach.
