Honeysuckles Astronomy Tours

Cultural and Theme Tours

Honeysuckles Astronomy Tours is a unique stargazing experience to appeal to everyone, located 2.5 hours east of Melbourne. It’s educational, fun and a great gift idea.

Discover a spectacular universe through a large aperture observatory grade telescope from a pristine dark sky site right by the beach in S-W Gippsland. Tour groups are small: from one to maximum four people in your own private group providing each observer with lots of time at the eyepiece as they explore galaxies, star-forming regions, gaseous nebulae, planets and more … The southern sky’s objects are the envy of astronomers from around the world and this is your best seat to take you there.

Tours commence with an overview of the night sky and our place in it, providing a 3D perspective. With the telescope we then travel millions of light-years into space viewing fascinating objects visible at the time of year.

Tours last approximately two to three hours. Local guests book for an evening Astro Tour, or from Melbourne seeking that special overnight getaway experience. Overnight guests have a private stay in a cosy two bedroom beachside cottage accommodation, leaving after a hearty breakfast and walk along the beach.

Bookings are made online from the website.

Honeysuckles Astronomy Tours is a unique stargazing experience to appeal to everyone, located 2.5 hours east of Melbourne.

Discover a spectacular universe through a large aperture observatory grade telescope from a pristine dark sky site in South-West Gippsland. Groups are small: from one to maximum four people in your group. This provides each observer with lots of observing time at the eyepiece as they explore galaxies, star forming regions, gaseous nebulae, planets and much more. It’s a spectacular night sky up there and this will be your best ticket to get there. The southern skies are the envy of astronomers around the world.

Each tour commences with an overview of the night sky and where we are in it. This provides a little ‘perspective’ and helps you to imagine the sky in 3D, not 2D as you view it when you look up. You are then immersed in the best objects visible as at the time of year.

Tours last approximately two hours. Guests can be local and book for an evening Astro Tour, or passing through and book a Tour and stay the night at beachside accommodation, leaving next morning after a hearty breakfast.
