May and June is the perfect time to visit the Kimberley because inaccessible areas open up after the wet season finishes. In the romantic town of Broome at this time of year you can see the spectacular Staircase to the Moon, a natural phenomena in which the rising moon reflects on Broome's tidal flats, resulting in what looks like a set of stairs leading to the moon. This sight is only visible for three nights a month between March and October. Swim beneath waterfalls and cruise through river gorges on a 4WD adventure along the Gibb River Road and join in the fun at the Argyle Diamonds Ord Valley Muster in Kununurra, one of the outback’s biggest events with a stellar line-up of music, arts, food and wine events in mid-May. May and June is also the ideal time to head to the Red Centre, when nights can be cool but days are sunny and warm. There is plenty happening in and around Alice Springs including the famous Finke Desert Race, Australia’s biggest and fastest desert race for motorbikes, cars, buggies and quad bikes and the quirky beanie festival in late June, a fun-filled community festival of wearable art.
