Astronomer in Residence Program
The Australian outback is perhaps one of the best places to explore the galaxy of stars in the night sky. The low humidity and minimal light pollution in the red centre allow you to view the stars and planets like you've never seen them before.
Learn more about the stars, planets, galaxy, Big Bang theory and cosmos with Ayers Rock Resort's Astronomer in Residence Program, brought to you in partnership with ASTRO 3D.
