McLaren Vale stargazing tour

Overview

Held at the McLaren Vale & Fleurieu Visitor Information Centre throughout the year. Treat yourself or your family or your group to a truly inspiring and personalised tour of the cosmos. We do a multicultural tour of the constellations with our laser pointer. We'll then show you the magnificent night sky through our large, powerful telescopes. You'll see stars, clusters, planets, nebulae, galaxies and more with one of Australia's most experienced astronomical guides. This is a 90 minute guided tour you won't soon forget! Follow our sign & flashing red lights from the Visitor Centre's carpark to our tour location behind the Centre. *** If the weather is unfavorable for astronomy, we will contact you and offer either an alternate date or refund *** What to bring: - dress warmly (even in summer, it gets cold in the evenings) - (optional) a small red torch, so you don't destroy your night vision with a white torch - (optional) a chair to sit on, if you're unaccustomed to standing outdoors for long period
