Get lost in the celestial splendour of the World Heritage-listed Blue Mountains skies during this captivating stargazing tour. Enjoy fascinating storytelling, naked-eye astronomy and tips on how to identify stars and constellations, and peek up at the dark sky through a professional-grade telescope.
Far removed from the city lights, the Blue Mountains offers stunning night skies with unrivalled clarity, making it the perfect place for a spot of stargazing. Over 90 minutes, astrophysicist Dimitri and his partner Caroline will give you an introduction to the history of the Blue Mountains through time and to the celestial dance of planets, satellites, the Milky Way and beyond. You'll also receive tips and hacks on how to identify stars and constellations through naked-eye astronomy. After this, you'll have the opportunity to peek through a professional computerised telescope and be dazzled by a number of celestial objects, depending on the time of year and night, including Saturn's rings, the moons of Jupiter, Mars and Venus, star clusters and shooting stars if you're lucky!
Maximum of 20 participants.
Please be aware that astronomy tours are weather dependent, they may be cancelled in case of cloud cover meaning no visible stars. The provider will message you at 1pm on the day of the tour to confirm the tour and check the latest weather forecast (more notice possible upon request). If the tour is cancelled, you will have the opportunity to reschedule for a later date or attend the indoor astronomy planetarium experience.
Ensure you have warm clothes, gloves and a blanket as mountain nights are chilly.

That’s 10% of the Australian population! When we started ‘doing’ experiences in 2001, Facebook didn’t exist; the iPod had just been invented; John Howard was Prime Minister; and Destiny's Child were popular (yikes!). We’ve been at this business of experiences for quite a while, so put your trust in us to show you a good time.
The RedBalloon Price Guarantee does not apply to experiences involving accommodation or Experience Providers' own conditional sales.
