About Outback Astronomy
Hang out with the stars while in Broken Hill. Enjoy a personalised night sky show from the comfort of a reclined chair under the vast Outback sky. You'll be enchanted and amazed by this star-gazing experience. Designed for the novice, our Sky Shows introduce you to famous stars and constellations, nebulae and other objects during a virtual cruise across the Milky Way. You'll experience naked eye and binocular-assisted viewing of the night sky with narration by a knowledgeable guide! We also offer telescope viewing in selected shows. We are outdoors under a lovely clear dark sky - there is no light pollution! While we ask that you rug up like your going to the snow, we also supply blankets and zero degree Celsius sleeping bags to slip into (boots and all) during cold months. Note that outback Australia can be sub-zero degrees from April to November! Very soon, we move to a new location with bathroom facilities and other permanent structures! Keep a watch on our website blog and our Facebook page.

Travis and Linda offered excellent food, care and commentary. We attended the Moonlight Dinner and the Sun Viewing. The venue is special being the old Flying Doctors’ HQ. The technical expertise and communication skills of Travis and Linda made the experience very worthwhile. Thanks you guys. PS: The burger and salad were par excellence. Highly recommend

Even before attending the evening Linda was attentive with communications, text and phone calls when it looked like the weather might not be good. The weather came good and we had a really enjoyable time. Comfortable seating, good equipment and all with food and drink options. You get your own high powered binoculars and a headset so all can hear Linda's dialogue. Great for those who would like to know more about the universe and informative for those who already have that passion. This is a recommended experience and something different to do in Broken Hill that can't be replicated in the cities.

I loved this experience! Linda and Travis gave us excellent information about everything we could see in the sky, including all the stars, planets, globulars and the moon:) We were given binoculars and the use of telescopes and with them I saw binary stars and open star formations! Highly recommend!
