Qué harás

Embark on a captivating space journey in the endless beauty of the World Heritage-listed Greater Blue Mountains skies. Join us for a fun, interactive and insightful sky watching nocturnal tour, stargazing experience and fascinating storytelling.

Perfect night out for all ages, date nights, 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!

I will delve into the study of every object and answer all your questions.

We look forward to sharing this moment with you in this special place in the world.

When I was a child, my parents told me that I was always looking at stars up into the sky. Fast-forward 25 years later, I was graduating with a PhD in Astronomy & Astrophysics from Macquarie University.

I absolutely love sharing my passion with the public. I have 10+ years experience and an extensive experience working with children. I worked as an Astronomy guide at Sydney Observatory, at Mt John Observatory, the world-renowned astronomical observatory in Lake Tekapo (New Zealand) and at the luxury Emirates One & Only Wolgan Valley.

I spend my time exploring the Blue Mountains looking for aboriginal engravings, making my natural-materials survival gear and developing my men’s coaching business. My fiancée Caroline and I are the founders of Blue Mountains Stargazing. We found our home sanctuary in Leura, Blue Mountains.

I went with my 8 year old son. We thoroughly enjoyed the experience and the whole 90 mins were mesmerizing. The hosts are very friendly and supportive. Highly recommend.

This has been the most unique and educational experience of my Australia trip so far. 2 passionate astronomers showing us planets and stars through a telescope (saw Saturn and its rings and Uranus and its moons live!), explaining the history and science behind them, in front of a beautiful view from Blue Mountains with a sky full of stars.

What an incredibly, inspirational experience! Firstly, the sunset over the mountains was spectaculadr. Through the telescope, we got to see the phases of Venus, the rings of Saturn, the moons of Jupiter, and a nebular cluster, which I had never seen before. Richard was an extremely knowledgeable guide and I particularly liked his stories of different First Nations' explanations of the stars and constellations. Highly recommend.

Excellent experience in a beautiful location. The hosts were very hospitable by bringing warm blankets for the guests on a very very cold winter night. Oat milk was the perfect and delicious extra touch. Hosts are super friendly and charismatic. Recommended experience!
