Roebuck Bay - Broome


Roebuck Bay is a bay on the coast of the Kimberley region of Western Australia. Its entrance is bounded in the north by the town of Broome, and in the south by Bush Point and Sandy Point. It is named after HMS Roebuck, the ship captained by William Dampier when he explored the coast of north-western Australia in 1699. The Broome Bird Observatory lies on the northern coast of the bay.

RvTrips' review

20 Aug 2015

Roebuck Bay is located near Broome in Western Australia. This is a very busy place for boating and fishing - we paddled over the waters of Roebuck Bay on a guided tour with Turtle Kayak Marine Adventures. We saw turtles, fish and plenty of bird life on the shores of Roebuck Bay - if you are lucky you may even see dolphins or Manta Rays. The water seems to change colour at different times of the day and the tidal differences can be huge. 

The staircase to the moon phenomenon can be seen over Roebuck Bay when the full moon rises over the exposed mudflat during a very low tide. This creates an optical illusion of stairs climbing to the moon - a very popular outing with visitors heading to the shoreline for a vantage point at sunset. Unfortunately I have not seen this yet as the clouds rolled in during our visit when the tide was low enough to see the staircase effect.

You can obtain information on Roebuck Bay and the Staircase to the Moon from Broome Visitor Information Centre. (This illusion can also be seen at certain spots further down the West Australian coast).
