Showcasing the vast outback sky, Outback Astronomy is based in Broken Hill, just over a two-hour flight from Sydney. They commenced operations in 2014 and offer an enchanting night sky show, taking guests on a personalised trip through the Milky Way. Designed for the novice, the one-hour sky shows are presented by sky guides with a passion for sharing knowledge.
Once guests are comfortably reclined in camp lounges and armed with powerful binoculars, they listen to live commentary through their personal audio system as the sky guide uses a powerful laser pointer to point out constellations and planets. Telescope viewing is also offered on selected evenings and weekends.
