Roebuck Bay is the place to view staircase to the Moon. The sight is amazing. You should buy a professional photo of the Staircase because a lot of people are disappointed with their own photos

We visited Roebuck Bay to watch the staircase to the moon from Mangrove Hotel in September 2018. It was just magical. Such a beautiful experience. When visiting Broome visit during full moon time to see this natural phenomenon.

Roebuck Bay is a 10 minute drive from Cable Beach with a completely different perspective and different price point and well worth considering if you are considering a trip to Broome. The Mangrove Hotel is a fabulous location to see the staircase to the moon....More

The bay , particularly the Mangrove Hotel is an extremely popular viewing area for Stairway to the Moon event. When the moon rises it appears to create a stairway. Millions of photos would have been taken of this notable event

This bay is pristine with abundant birdlife. You can enjoy the Staircase to the Moon at full moon from Town Beach or from The Mangrove Hotel. You can also enjoy being out on the actual mudflats if you take a trip on the Broome Hovercraft....More

Roebuck Bay covers a huge area. The township, many types of accommodation, restaurants, national park, bird observatory & the wharf are some of the many sights around the bay. We loved the beautiful waters and the red pindan cliffs.
