Staircase to the Moon

  • Hearson’s Cove via, Dampier Drive Dampier, WA, 6713 Australia (map)

Staircase to the Moon is a spectacular natural phenomenon in the northern region of WA. On the West Pilbara Coast it can be experienced at Cossack Lookout and Hearson’s Cove, near Karratha.

Occurring on full moon dates, from March to November along the coast of northern WA, the Staircase to the Moon is a beautiful optical illusion. Only created when the full moon reflects on exposed mudflats at extremely low tide, it forms a magical staircase reaching up to the moon. Plan an evening complete with deck chair, wine and camera to view this spectacular event at beautiful Hearson’s Cove.
