In Western Australia we’re working to protect the dark night sky and share amazing stargazing with visitors from near and far.
What we’re doing…
Astrotourism WA Founder, Carol Redford, has spent over 10 years stargazing and working with passionate amateurs in the astronomy field in Western Australia. Also known as “Galaxy Girl” in astronomy circles, Carol knows how special the WA night sky is. With Astrotourism WA, she is now working towards making sure its preserved for decades to come so that visitors from around the world can be inspired by the beauty of our Milky Way Galaxy.
“Western Australia’s night sky is an asset worth protecting. Communities around WA are working to keep the night sky as dark as possible by reducing light pollution. While we’re protecting our night sky, we’re inviting visitors from around the world to share its beauty. At the same time, we’re growing our understanding of how stargazing brings people together.”
Carol has a vision to grow regional tourism in WA by using our State’s astronomical strengths and protecting our dark night sky as a world-class asset that will attract visitors for decades to come.
Donna, at Beam Me Up Media, is aiming to produce a television series featuring the amazing places and characters making WA the go-to destination for space science and stargazing.
