Loved it. Went three times: the day and the day before and after (which were also good and less crowded). I also liked the ambience of the market and the crowds who went to see the sight. One night we went to the hotel instead of the place near Town Beach, but didn't like this as much. Too many of the patrons of the hotel had too much to drink, while the beach mob were just focused on the market/moon.

sat in the sand for ages along with thousands of others, but when the moon appeared. Wow! all worth the sandflies and chilly wind, but helped with a nice bit of Asian food from the nearby market.

only a few days each month, three days when we were there, at 6:30pm the firsdt day, then 7:30 and 8:30pm.. pick your spot well..we chose the Mangrove Hotel which was good with lots of room to spread out and the added benefit of having a drink while we were waiting. what we did not know is that tables could have been reserved so we could have had a table right at the front and had dinner here while waiting... the whole thing is obviously over in half an hour more or less and if you want to take pictures don't forget your tripod, as there is not much here to rest your camera on...it get's crowded.

So beautiful, if you are lucky enough to time your visit. Over three nights we saw too, The best being at Matsos for dinner and bang there was the gigantic moon could have walked right up to it.
Second night we went to Town Beach Market and tried to find a place among the crowd. Good view but was freezing and a long wait.

They call it the stairway to the stars when the full moon coincides with a low spring tide at night the reflection from the moon shines on the mud flats of Roebuck bay simulating a stairway to the moon very popular attracting many people to Broome each year
