The first two days of Staircase to the Moon generally also play host to the Staircase to the Moon markets at Town Beach. Here you can sample local produce, buy hand made products, a variety of international food, and enjoy the sounds of local entertainers. Another popular spot to view the event is The Mangrove Hotel Resort, with live entertainment every Staircase night.
The Staircase to the Moon is a very popular attraction with locals and tourists alike. Local bus services run extra services to ensure everyone can get down to see it for themselves. One local tour operator, Broome and Around, offers a special staircase tour with a return trip from just $15pp (pickup from your hotel and return).
Local photographer's, such as Yane Sotiroski, have captured this amazing vision perfectly and often these keepsake photographic prints and souvenirs are available to buy at the market.
With the amazing development at Town Beach, the Staircase to the Moon is one of the most iconic experiences in Broome.
