What is the recommended age for children to attend?

Outback Astronomy sky shows are not recommened for children aged 5 years and under.

Children must be accompanied by a supervising adult at all times.

Pricing for children who attend scheduled sky shows is visible at the time of booking.

Children up to 5 years of age in attendance must be paid for if attending with their family if they occupy a reclined or upright chair. Very young children may not be issued with audio units or optical equipment. These decisions will be made on the day, at the discretion of Outback Astronomy staff.

In the event of a noisy or distracting atmosphere, they and their supervising adult may be required to leave the sky dome viewing area if instructed to do so by the sky guide.

Note that when lower prices are offered equipment restrictions may also be imposed.

We can host special sky shows for children and school groups.

Sky shows can be arranged for older students. Please enquire to discuss themes and prices.
