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

Please be aware there are no current COVID vaccination requirements to gain entry to Norfolk Island. It is important that you keep up to date with the latest government requirements available at: at: http://www.norfolkisland.gov.nf/covid-19-advice-norfolk-island
It is strongly recommended that you still undertake a Rapid Antigen Test (RAT) for COVID-19 within 48 hours of departing and if this is positive do not travel to the island. Norfolk Island has very limited health facilities compared with the mainland and particularly if you are elderly, unvaccinated or with a comorbidity and become infected with COVID-19 you will strain these facilities. There remains a mandatory requirement to report a positive result to either PCR or RAT for COVID-19 to the Norfolk Island Health and Residential Aged Care Service (NIHRACS) whilst on the island. This will result in self-isolation until you are symptom free at your own cost
