Rawnsley Park stargazing tour (Flinders Ranges)

Overview

Held at Rawnsley Park and at Wilpena Pound (alternating nights) during the school holidays.

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!

The Rawnsley tour is held at the Rawnsley Park airstrip. Look for our roadside sign & flashing red light at the turnoff to the airstrip.

*** If the weather is unfavorable for astronomy, we will try to 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 periods
