You can catch the Broome Explorer Bus to the Courthouse and Night Markets from all major accommodation.
The Broome Markets are held in the beautiful Heritage listed gardens of the Broome Courthouse. Started over 25 years ago by a small group of locals wishing to trade local product, they have grown to become a major tourist attraction in Broome and host up to 115 creative stalls over the Dry Season. Trading every Saturday all year and Sunday from April – October, the local markets attracts visitors from far and wide.
Broome Night Markets Staircase to the Moon Night Market
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 May – 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, Egyptian food/kebabs/falafels, Chinese, Greek, Fruit Smoothies, Ice Cream, Donuts, Hot Dogs, Coffee and more… Stalls with jewellery, craft, clothing, confectionery, local Mango products, soaps, incense, candles, photography, home-wares and more can be perused at a leisurely pace in the cool evening.
