Discover two worlds of the night sky with a magical evening under the stars.
Immerse yourself in Wilman Noongar culture with storytelling around the campfire, didgeridoo music and see Aboriginal star patterns revealed overhead. Ancient Aboriginal astronomy entwines with modern astronomy as we take a close look at the Universe through large telescopes to see planets, galaxies and more.
Camping and Wildflower Walks are also available the next day. Why not bring along your camera and practice your photography.
