Bring the topical strength fly spray and get there early. Make sure you have a tripod with a good lens if you want the best photos of this exciting event.

We saw this phenomenon from Town Beach on the third and last night it is visible. On this night the moon was not up until 8 pm and it is beginning to wane. It was not as crowded as the middle night so it was easy to get a place to sit. The moon was a magnificent deep orange colour... More

We watched this from the Mangrove Hotel and the sight is just as stunning as they say in the marketing. We made an evening of it by having dinner at the hotel and then it all unfolded right in front of us!

Really worth making the effort to be in Broome at the right time to see tis amazing phenomena!!! We saw it from the vantage point of the Mangrove Hotel, with some champagne and nibblies. Really nice. Others had told us it's hard to get a good photo of but we had a good camera and did actually get a few.

I just can't believe people have complained about this wondrous event. Staircase to the Moon is a natural phenomenon which occurs when a full moon rises over the exposed tidal flats of Roebuck Bay, Broome. The Staircase to the Moon happens 2 - 3 days a month Yes, there are crowds but it costs you absolutely nothing to view it.... More

Wow, where to begin, know previous location of moon ie previous night, go to mangrove lodge early to grab best vantage point, order drinks early as hundreds turn up, and wait to be inspired..beautiful, almost spiritual , tones of didgeridoo amplifies the experience and I'm not usually into that sort of thing..

After a busy holiday we heard of a spot where there are no crowds. We got some great photos in a quiet & dark location.

Arrived in Broome and lucky to see the Staircase to the Moon on the last night of April this year. Watched from The Mangrove Hotel which has the best set up. Pop up takeaway food stalls, all good value. Make sure you take insect repellant with you as we got attacked by sandflies. Wonderful to sit and watch the Staircase... More
