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 as an Astronomy & Field Guide at the luxury resort Emirates One & Only Wolgan Valley (Blue Mountains).

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 fiancé Caroline and I found our home sanctuary in Leura in the Blue Mountains.

Donde estarás

We will meet at Wentworth Falls Picnic area, at Jamison lookout, a short 10-minute drive from the iconic touristic Katoomba. It is wheelchair-friendly, with plenty of parking. There are toilets, a large wooden bench to sit down or lay down with the binoculars. It is a large spot that makes it easy for social distancing. The lookout offers a fabulous 360 sunset vista of the lush Jamison Valley!

We felt slightly sceptical upon booking, however the entire tour turned out to be the highlight of our trip to the blue mountains. The hosts were completely accomodating and provided unforgettably beautiful memories we will cherish for our lifetime.

It was a wonderful experience. He was educational and explained things really well. It was great seeing the different celestial objects in the night sky and I recommend this tour for anyone wanting a basic understanding and tour of the night sky.

The Stargazing experience with Dimitri was so much more than we expected! Him and his partner were extremely accommodating, and made sure everyone felt welcome and engaged the entire time. Dimitri did a fantastic job at explaining the complexity of things in a way everyone could understand (even young children). Location was perfect and we would definitely do it again!

It was a great moment. Dimitri & Caroline were super friendly and enthusiastic- quite contagious. They thoughtfully had brought tea and hot chocolate for us to warm on while we started the stargazing experience. Lots of story telling and sharing of knowledge- making the experience interesting and easy to understand. All while being able to give expert I formation too. We definitely want to come back in the summer. With friends and family for our own thing.
