Staircase to the Moon

Published: Friday, 25 October 2019 at 2:53:05 PM

While you're in Port Hedland, be sure to view a special natural phenomenon - Staircase to the Moon. The best view is located next to the Cooke Point Caravan Park on Good Street between March and October. This unique phenomenon occurs when the full moon rises over the exposed mudflats during extremely low tides, creating an illusion of a staircase reaching to the moon.
