Arkaroola International Dark Sky Sanctuary
Flinders Ranges and Outback
Being located in the far-northern Flinders Ranges, Arkaroola is fortunate to have a world class atmospheric transparency index and seeing quality due to its arid environment and elevation. Arkaroola's skies are exceptionally dark due to its distance from any towns, with the Wilderness Sanctuary employing a “low light” policy in the evenings. Arkaroola runs three fully equipped astronomical observatories, two located well above the Village area and one conveniently located virtually at its reception area, with all three designed and operated to ensure an unforgettable stargazing experience. In addition to conducting Advanced Ecotourism Accredited Astronomy Tours, each of the observatories are available to professional and amateur astronomers, or to visiting astronomical societies and clubs (conditions apply).
From $54.00 to $80.00
Arkaroola runs a variety of Astronomy tours ranging in price including; an Under the Stars Stargazing Experience, Explore the Cosmos Digital Astro Experience & Astronomical Observatory sessions.
