WHAT TO EXPECT

This is the ultimate stargazing experience at the one and only Uluru-Kata Tjuta National Park. Uluru is usually blessed with ideal stargazing weather, including clear skies and crisp air. 

 

Looking at stars, planets and deep sky celestial objects with your naked eyes and a computerized telescope, the astronomy guide will take you on an unforgettable journey with stars, sounds and surprises. 

 

The tour starts with hotel pickup, with the collection time typically between 8:00 pm to 8:30 pm, depending on weather conditions and visibility (e.g. moonrise). The exact time will be confirmed in the early afternoon. 

 

Then, your guide will take you to an ideal viewing area at the Uluru-Kata Tjuta National Park, away from artificial light and pollution. Here you’ll stay for about 90 minutes, with plenty of time to gaze at the deep beyond and take incredible nighttime photos. Plus, your guide can personalize the experience depending on your interests, whether it's recognising the zodiac signs or exploring our place in the Universe.

Yes. The tour is designed for an adult audience, especially because some children are afraid of being in the dark. However, children age 6 and above are very welcome. We do want to inspire our future astronomers!

Yes, there will be plenty of opportunities to take photos at our viewing site. We have tripods, iPhone 12 and a Nikon DSLR camera and can assist you in taking cool photos. However, please resist using flash photography, as strong white light would interference with our night vision.
