Make your event spectacular

Whether you are organising a private or corporate function, we've got your night time entertainment covered. Our guided stargazing tours are suitable for any type of occasion, including team building events, product launches, conferences, Christmas or Birthday parties. We come to your outdoor event location anywhere near Sydney - yes even those in the centre of the city. Although best enjoyed under dark skies, our guided stargazing tours will astonish your guests in any location, even under some light pollution.

PRIVATE STARGAZING TOURS

Are you looking for a unique date night idea or fun family activity? Are you or your friends/kids interested in stargazing and want to see and learn more? Do you have a special date or anniversary coming up and want to make it unforgettable?

It's easy, just flick us an email with your location, number of guests, and the date you'd like to book in for, and we'll get back to you with more info. We provide guided stargazing tours throughout Sydney and across NSW.

LAKE CRACKENBACK RESORT & SPA

Night Sky Tours in the Snowy Mountains

The Snowy Mountains are known for its crystal clear skies so we are so excited to show guests the stars on the “rooftop of Australia”. Click the link below for more info on when we will next be at Lake Crackenback Resort & Spa running more guided stargazing tours.

CENTENNIAL PARK, SYDNEY

Astronomy in the Park

Centennial Park is one of the darkest places in Sydney, so it’s the perfect setting for guided stargazing tours. All ages are welcome, and family discounts are now available! Book in by clicking the link below.

 

 ABOUT THE TOURS

Come together with your family, friends, or with that special someone for an unforgettable evening under the stars. Our stargazing tours will help you make sense of what’s going on in the night sky. 


From the comfort of your chair, you will learn how to navigate using the stars and be captivated by stories of the cosmos through perspectives of people from across the world. 


Then, you will look through a high powered telescope to see things that aren’t visible to the naked eye. With a delicious hot chocolate in hand, you’ll have the opportunity to ask questions and quietly enjoy the wonder of the night sky.


Depending on the night, you may see the craters on the Moon, the rings around Saturn, distant star clusters and more.

FAQ - PRIVATE BOOKINGS

LOCATION

We have a regular site within Sydney. We use this location as it easily accessible yet sheltered from the bright city lights, as well as being safe at night and having access to nearby toilets. Let me know if you’d prefer somewhere further outside of Sydney and we can discuss options.

DATE & TIMING

Let me know what date you’d prefer and we'll check our availability.

Our sessions start an hour after sunset. Events run for around 1.5hrs.

WHAT'S INCLUDED

From the comfort of your seats, you will learn how to navigate and orient yourselves using the stars, and hear stories of the cosmos through perspectives of people from across the world. Then, you will look through our high powered telescope to see things that aren’t visible to the naked eye. With hot chocolate in hand, you’ll have the opportunity to ask questions and quietly enjoy the wonder of the night sky. If the moon is up (it’s only visible in our night sky for half of every month), you'll also be able to take a photo of it through the telescope as a keepsake.

We provide all equipment: telescope and binoculars, seating, lighting, table, picnic rug, blankets and cushions, hot chocolate, water etc.

WEATHER

Stargazing events are weather dependent. If rain or significant cloud cover is forecast, we must cancel the session and all guests are invited to reschedule to another date. We will be in touch on the morning of the event to re-confirm your booking, weather permitting. Unfortunately, we are unable to call it any sooner due to the unpredictability of the current weather.

WHAT TO BRING

It may be cold and wet from the dew, so all guests are asked to dress accordingly: warm clothes and covered shoes. Everything else is provided.

PRICE & BOOKING IN

Our price for a private star tour in Sydney starts at $250 for two people. This price increases depending on the number of people attending. Locations outside of Sydney incur an additional travel fee.

To book your private guided stargazing session, email us at contact@southernskytours.com.au with your preferred date, number of guests and location.
