When you fly into Broome you see from the sky what Roebuck Bay is all about: turquoise waters. But on dry land, the Mangrove Hotel is the place to be. There's some great history behind the name Roebuck and it is well worth a read...More

There is a platform by the sidewalk to view the sea beyond the mangroves, but the best views are from the Mangrove Hotel restaurant a bit further on. Both overlooks are within walking distance of town center.

Wow - a visit here is a must for any nature lover or photo enthusiast. The colours are insane. Best to visit at low tide.

Roebuck Bay is the place to view staircase to the Moon. The sight is amazing. You should buy a professional photo of the Staircase because a lot of people are disappointed with their own photos

We visited Roebuck Bay to watch the staircase to the moon from Mangrove Hotel in September 2018. It was just magical. Such a beautiful experience. When visiting Broome visit during full moon time to see this natural phenomenon.

Roebuck Bay is a 10 minute drive from Cable Beach with a completely different perspective and different price point and well worth considering if you are considering a trip to Broome. The Mangrove Hotel is a fabulous location to see the staircase to the moon....More
