Dark Sky Dinner

Community Event

12 Aug 2022 Annual Event

Beaker Street’s NOCTURNA weekend begins with this chef-prepared dinner at Spring Bay Mill — a three-course, candle-lit dinner served in our award-winning Banksia Room. Enjoy beautiful East Coast hospitality with local food and drink in an intimate setting. We’ll hear from local scientists Professor Philip Boyd and Professor Catriona Hurd about their work to protect the marine ecosystems off Tassie’s East Coast. Learn about the cutting-edge science and the complexities around ocean afforestation, carbon sequestration, and negative emissions technologies.

Note this is a Dark Sky friendly event: We’ll keep the lights low so you can step outside and enjoy the night skies. Please keep this in mind if you find low-light environments challenging.

Drinks will be available for sale but are not included in the ticket price.

The Dark Sky Dinner can be booked as a stand-alone event, but we recommend you make a weekend of it and stay for NOCTURNA, the Dark Sky Finale on Saturday 13 August.

Book accommodation at the Mill and roll into bed after dinner, then wake up to beautiful surrounds. Here’s how to book:
