It was exciting to welcome the Shire of Narrogin to the Astrotourism Towns network in July 2020. The town is only a short drive from Perth and offers some wonderful locations for stargazing and astrophotography. Being just under 200 kms south east of Perth, the night time view to the south and the magnificent Milky Way is free from artificial light pollution from the city.

There are a variety of places to stay and there’s so many things to see and do in and around Narrogin. It’s worthy of a longer stay to explore during the day and night!

Night Sky Stargazing Experiences

If you happen to be camping in the Dryandra Woodland, there are stars and wildlife on offer.

Dryandra Woodland offers more than you think. If you’re a keen stargazer, you can also enjoy a nocturnal wildlife experience. Spot some threatened native animals such as the bilby, boodie and woylie at the predator-proof animal sanctuary Barna Mia. Then it will be time to set up your telescope at your campsite to see some celestial neighbours!
