Have you ever wondered what’s out there or wanted to see a dark sky where stars sparkle like diamonds?
Outback Astronomy delivers an informative and entertaining experience. Hear how people understand the science of the sky and draw your own conclusions about alien life.
The venue is located five kilometres from Broken Hill and has an exceptionally dark sky.
You stargaze from a reclined chair in a purpose-built stargazing dome. Armed with binoculars you will be eager to see more through the telescope.
Sky shows are designed for the novice, and introduce you to planets, stars and galaxies.
Your knowledgeable sky guide highlights objects with a powerful laser pointer, narrating the view in your virtual cruise across the Milky Way Galaxy.
All guests must bring their own blankets for warmth outdoors until further notice, due to the pandemic. Outback nights are very cold in winter.
