It was a last minute decision and probably the best decision so far in my trip. When they take you to the site you'll get a seat, and once all the flashlights are turned off you'll be surrounded by pure darkness, which is great for...More

Very enjoyable evening watching the sunset with canapés and sparkling wine before eating a 3 course dinner as the sunsets over the Olgas. The proximity to the rock means it seems small in the distance but the Olgas were stunning. Great food, good service and...More

What a fantastic insight into astronomy. Sean was so informative and generous with his time, definitely recommend adding this to the list especially with kids, very close to the town square and accommodation. A great way to wind down for the evening.

Hi All-- We are visiting this August (2017) and are looking for an experience to see the Milky Way, stars, planets, etc. The Milky Way should be very visible the night we are there (August 21) because the moon is virtually dark. We thought maybe we could hire a private tour guide with some knowledge of the Milky Way, stars, planets. There are four of us. But I think what I am seeing is group tours and not private tours. I was just curious if there are any "private" or very small groups available. If not, any tour would be great. Regards, Jan
