Perfect night out for all ages, date nights, singles, families, groups and locals. This unforgettable tour features Australia’s spectacular night sky away from the city lights. A wonderful opportunity to experience the Southern Sky and its celestial wonders only visible from the Southern hemisphere. 

We'll start the tour with a quick introduction of the history of the Blue Mountains through time. We'll follow with tips and hacks on how to identify stars and constellations with the naked-eye and introduce you to the celestial dance of planets, satellites, navigation, the Universe, our home Galaxy and beyond... 

You will then observe through the professional-grade telescope objects such as (depending on the time of year and night): 

- The Moon and its craters and seas 

- Saturn’s rings 

- The moons of Jupiter 

- Mars & Venus 

- The Orion Nebula 

- Star clusters 

- Double & triple stars 

- Deep space objects such as galaxies and our fabulous Milky Way - Shooting stars if you are lucky! 

- The guide will delve into the study of every object and answer all your questions.

The tour takes place at Wentworth Falls Lookout, a short 10-min drive from the iconic Katoomba, offering a fabulous 180 degrees vista of the Jamison Valley, dramatic escarpment and sounds of the waterfalls.
