- Staircase to the moon
You’ve heard of a staircase to heaven, but have you ever heard of a staircase to the moon?
One of Karratha’s most famous attractions, staircase to the moon is a natural phenomenon, which creates a stunning illusion caused by the reflection of the full moon on the mudflats at Hearson’s Cove at extremely low tides. Be there between April to October – you have to see it to believe it!

Feeling active? Find 30 and soak up picturesque, panoramic Karratha views on a 3.5-kilometre stroll through the Yaburara Heritage Trail.
Feast your eyes on beautiful flora and fauna and even ancient Aboriginal sites including rock carvings and artefact scatters.
Trail maps and further information on associated flora, fauna, geology and indigenous heritage are available from the Karratha Visitor Centre.
