Escape city light pollution and join local astrophysicists and astronomers at our annual stargazing event in the heart of Centennial Park.

Immerse yourself into a night of stargazing – looking up we see the bright and the dark – one side will be explained by our scientists of the Sydney Observatory, the other by our aboriginal educator who will share his stories about the sky with us. One of our guides will show you the park’s secret in the dark.

At our telescope station, you will have the chance to observe the sky and ask our scientists about the phenomena you discover.

Once you and your group have discovered the sky and the park, we will wind up the evening at a campfire where you can relax, reflect the stories you heard, and enjoy a night in the park under the stars.
