Outback Astronomy

Hang out with the stars while in Broken Hill. Enjoy a personalised night sky show from the comfort of a reclined chair under the vast Outback sky. You'll be enchanted and amazed by this stargazing experience.

Designed for the novice, these mainly 60 minute Sky Shows introduce you to famous stars, constellations, nebulae, and other objects during a virtual cruise across the Milky Way. You'll experience naked eye and binocular-assisted viewing of the night sky with narration by a knowledgeable guide! They also offer telescope viewing on selected evenings, extending the sky show to 90 minutes.

Visit their web site, and click "View the Calendar" on the Home page, to select your personalised encounter with the night sky. Suitable for persons aged six years and over. They can schedule separate sky shows for children aged five to 12 years in consultation with parents and teachers.
