STAIRCASE TO THE MOON

This natural phenomenon is caused by the rising of a full moon reflecting off the exposed mudflats in Roebuck Bay at extremely low tide, this creates a beautiful optical illusion of a staircase reaching to the moon, best seen from Town Beach and the Mangrove Hotel. Night markets are held at Town Beach and all market dates are subject to change without prior notice.

 

 

 

 

SUN PICTURES

The world's oldest outdoor picture gardens! The cinema is directly under the flight path for take-off and landing at the airport, patrons are advised that planes will make dramatic and loud appearances throughout the evening. Do not be alarmed.  And you cannot go past a homemade chocbomb ice-cream whilst relaxing back in the deck chairs to watch a movie. A definite visit for a unique Broome experience.
