Full description
At a location only a short drive from Margaret River, join a small passionate group for a unique 90-minute exploration of the cosmos and learn fascinating facts about the universe. Navigate through the constellations and discover beautiful star clusters, interesting nebulae, and even galaxies millions of light years away.

Imagine looking through the telescope at the moon and seeing its deep craters and mountain ranges in such detail that they seem close enough to touch. Try seeing the fascinating shapes of nebulas, near and far. And on a moonless night, you can be among the few to have ever seen another galaxy with your own eyes.

You will be among a small group of like minded people and enjoy the best views available on the night for a truly unforgettable experience.
