Broome Regular Events

There is always something to do or see in Broome. I have listed a few of the regular events here but if you check back from time to time, I will also list new events.

Staircase to the Moon

Town Beach – Staircase Markets

Staircase to the MoonThe Staircase Markets are held at the Town Beach Reserve on Robinson Street. Wander around under the stars, sample the tastes of Broome cuisine and take in the spectacular, Staircase to the Moon. A special gift or something to spoil yourself can be found in one of the many exciting stalls.

The Staircase to the Moon, is a natural phenomenon, 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. This image was kindly supplied by Damian Kelly Photography.
