Stargaze tour from Cowan's Observatory, nestled away in a purpose-built crater. Enhance your knowledge of our Southern skies in an evening of discovery on this private group tour.
This is an exclusive stargazing tour where you'll learn about our Southern skies from one of our expert Astronomy guides, in the privacy of your own group.
This exclusive experience includes:
- 75 minutes private guided stargazing tour at Cowan's Observatory (using telescopes up to 14" in diameter)
- Group photo (sent via email in the week following the experience)
Stargazing is a weather dependent activity. If weather conditions prevent us from taking you outdoors (e.g. cloud cover or inclement weather) you'll be offered alternate options including learning about our Southern skies from our purpose-built technological venue. Please read our terms and conditions for further information.
