Wirrina Cove stargazing tour (Fleurieu Peninsula)

Overview

Operates at Wirrina Cove Resort on most Saturdays and some weekdays 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!

Group pricing applies for 10 or more persons in a single booking. We may also be able to do the Wirrina tour on other non-scheduled dates, by prior arrangement.

*** 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, or a picnic blanket, if you're unaccustomed to standing outdoors for long periods
