Hang out with the stars in Broken Hill as you take a 90 minute virtual cruise across the outback sky. Enjoy telescope and binocular viewing from the comfort of a deluxe reclined lounge, snuggled into a sleeping bag if the weather is cold. The sky is so big and clear you can devour the sparkling view with your naked eyes. Your sky guide describes the view with a good balance of science, general information and humour. You will virtually cruise to celestial icons. Your memorable evening with the stars requires no prior knowledge of astronomy. All equipment needed for your sky show is supplied. You can select a snack and drink from options when you arrive. You will also receive a photo of your experience, emailed to you normally within 24 hours.
