See stars sparkle like diamonds and get to understand the view.

Outback Astronomy delivers an informative and entertaining stargazing experience.

The venue is located outside Broken Hill and has a pitch-black sky on moon-free nights.

You will stargaze from a reclined or upright chair outdoors, on a purpose-built stargazing dome.

Guests are provided with binoculars. Some viewing is through powerful telescopes.

Sky shows are designed for the novice.

Your sky guide highlights objects with a laser pointer, narrating the view of the Milky Way Galaxy.

Important Note:
All guests must bring their own blankets and other warm gear. In winter plan to wear seven layers, plus beanie, scarf, gloves. In summer, plan for a cool change with 3 or more layers.
