Breathtaking natural phenomenon known as Staircase to the Moon visible from Town Beach. When the rising full moon reflects off the exposed mudflats at extremely low tide, a beautiful optical illusion of stairs reaching to the moon is exposed. The Staircase Markets are held at Town Beach Reserve over the two nights of the full moon March – October.
