Event Details

Join astronomer Dave Reneke on an amazing tour of our beautiful night skies - Norfolk Island is a Gold Level Dark Sky registered site.

Dave Reneke With Group's New Telescope

David Reneke ('Astro Dave') is one of Australia's most well known and respected astronomers and lecturers with links to some of the world's leading astronomical institutions. David presents information in an easy to understand, up to date and informative manner - he is an experienced guide with decades of experience leading star-gazing discovery tours.

Norfolk Island is now a Gold Level Dark Sky Town recognised for its “excellent dark sky – suitable for deep sky observing and astrophotography”.

This follows Norfolk Island Tourism’s successful application to the Australian Dark Sky Register (ADSR) in which this popular holiday destination for Australians and New Zealanders joins a select group of locations that provide great views of the night sky which are accessible to everyone.

Norfolk Island proudly has little or no light pollution and boasts one of the darkest skies on Earth.

Sessions through the week start with a warm Welcome Event to meet Dave and other travellers for the event. Our indoor Audio-Visual presentations include 'Secrets of the Universe' explaining the Universe using the latest NASA images and Apollo 11 The Untold Story, 50 moon landing facts you were never told about and never knew!,

View the Moon up close, planets, stars, nebula, take a laser guided sky tour enjoy Dave’s indigenous Sky Stories, hold a real meteorite, take your own Moon photo and enjoy a Farewell Dinner on the last night!


Optional tours are available at extra cost for participants wishing to learn more about Norfolk Island's unique culture, environment and industries.
