McLaren Vale stargazing tour (Fleurieu Peninsula)

Price from $38

Overview

Operates at the McLaren Vale & Fleurieu Visitor Information Centre on some Fridays 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 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 flashing red lights from the Visitor Centre's carpark to our tour location behind the Centre.

We offer this tour more frequently at Wirrina Cove and (seasonally) at Port Elliot.

*** If the weather is unfavourable for astronomy, we will contact you and offer either an alternate date or refund ***

*** This venue requires a minimum number of bookings to run our tour here ***

What to bring:
