Outback Sky Journeys

BOOK

from $50 per adult

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 unnatural light in the Red Centre allow you to view the stars and planets like you've never seen them before. You'll see the wide expanse of the outback sky ablaze with countless stars.

The Family Astro Tours takes place just after sunset and is designed to suit families. This tour provides a great introduction to astronomy. The tour is broken into three segments – the past, the present and the future.

Past: learn how ancient cultures used the night sky for mythology, orientation and to predict upcoming seasons. Present: an opportunity to explore the night sky with telescopes and binoculars. Our resident astronomer will point out different constellations, stars and planets. Future: the evening concludes as you sit back and relax, while your guide contemplates what may be around the corner for astronomy and humankind.

The Astro Tour will take you on a fact finding journey through the southern night sky, enhancing your knowledge on astronomy and its beginnings. Your resident astronomer will guide you through the evolution of the Universe.

Free for children 15 years and under when accompanied by a paying adult.

Mani Mani Indigenous Cultural Theatre

Mani-Mani Theatre Company’s unique sound, lighting, 3D effects and performance take you on a visually captivating experience transporting you to the ancient lands of Central Australia where the story of Walawuru, Kakalyalya & Kaanka unravels. The symbolic story of Walawuru, Kakalyalya & Kaanka is a tale of love, jealousy and greed. Expressed through ‘Mani-Mani’, the local art form of storytelling, this contemporary Indigenous performance brings to life the ancient ancestral beings Walawuru the Wedge-Tailed Eagle and his two wives; Kaanka the black crow and Kakalyalya the white cockatoo. Walawuru is happy with his two wives but little does he know Kaanka is evil and very jealous of the kind and caring Kakalyalya. The word ‘Mani-Mani’ comes from the Yankunytjatjara & Pitjantjatjara language of the Anangu people of Central Australia. Anangu people would often tell stories by drawing symbols in the sand using a stick taken from a branch of the Mani-Mani tree. The stories were often about ancestors, real events in history and the Tjukurpa creation time. Please note: this tour will recommence 5 February 2018
