Staircase Night Markets

The Staircase to the Moon is a natural phenomenon observed in Broome Western Australia between April and October only.  It is 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. 

The Staircase Markets are held at the Town Beach Reserve on Robinson Street over the two nights of the full moon April – October. Wander around the colourful local stalls under the stars, sample the tastes of Broome cuisine, listen to local live music and take in the spectacular Staircase to the Moon. 

Bring the family and enjoy a meal on the grass… Burgers, Pizza, Thai, Laksa, Satays, Fish N Chips, Raw Food, Chinese, Fruit Smoothies, Ice Cream, Donuts, Hot Dogs, Coffee and more… 

Stalls with jewellery, craft, clothing, confectionery, local Mango products, soaps, incense, candles, photography, homewares and more can be perused at a leisurely pace in the cool evening. 

Extra bus services run during this time - check with Town Bus Service for times.
