Roebuck Bay is Broome's best beach. This is the spot to see stairwy to the moon,and on the designated night a market takes place to add to the atmosphere. The Roebuck Bay caravan park fronts direcly onto the beach.Easily Broome's nicest park. O.K. it's a litle old but all amenities are clean ,sites are spacious and the staff are friendly

The colour of the water in the bay is an incredible turquoise and the tides are quite high - amzing to see the difference in the appearance of the area between... More

To be here for the Stairway to the Moon as the moon rises and reflects in the low tide is a sight to be seen.

Loved Roebuck Bay and the Town Beach, and also spent 2 days at the Bird Observatory which was amazing. Wonderful beach down there with lots of water birds. Great facilities

Loved travelling across the mud flaps in such an amazing vehicle. Great way to see the low tide and of course the dinosaur footsteps. Worth a trip

If you watch Ray Mears, you will know of the Diamonds, scattered somewhere in Roebuck Bay, by the Aboriginals. Found on a crashed plane, but thrown away, as the loals thought they were going to get arrested if caught with then. Still in the ground somewhere..........

This was a beautiful place to see the staircase to the moon which was a phenomenal attraction as well as a lovely view of the water.

The Bay is a beautiful place with turquoise waters matched against the vivid red of the pindan red cliffs and the pinky grey tidal flats. We have witnessed amazing tidal flows, the Stairway to the Moon phenomenon ( the moon rising over the Bay leaving an artistic look not unlike a staircase) and a variety of watercraft using the Bay....

Roebuck Bay was huge and the water colour stunning. Shoreline is very pretty with contrast from red soil to blue water. Small patches of mangrove mixed with sand beaches also adds to the appeal.
