The band of the Milky Way is a lost view for many people across the world due to light pollution, haze, vegetation and built-up environments.
However at this sky show, you can soak up the view of thousands of stars, swaddled in the hazy band above.
When possible, fine examples of Australian Aboriginal interpretations of the night sky are included along with some classical western mythology. This sky show proceeds in clear conditions when the Moon is absent from the sky or at the most, a thin crescent.
While comfortably reclined on a camping lounge, your sky guide will explain the view overhead – but remember to BYO warm blanket – we cannot supply this type of warm gear until further notice. You will gain perspective about our place in the majestic Milky Way Galaxy. This is a great way to become acquainted with our night sky – nature’s most beautiful, sparkling canvas. Your naked eyes will devour the galaxy. Your senses will be immersed deep in space.
During your virtual galactic cruise, we will supply you with powerful binoculars so that you can properly explore the magnificent celestial objects. We’ll highlight visible planets, star clusters and famous constellations.
There’s no better way to be introduced to our galaxy! No astronomy knowledge is required to attend this event.
Remember to arrive at least 30 minutes before the scheduled start time. We lockdown and darken our site at least 15 minutes before the start time.
