Behold the drama of the night sky, observed through state-ofthe-art telescopes against a canvas of absolute blackness on the sweeping plains of Australia’s largest area of salt pans, north of Burketown.   

Your guide will share Dreamtime stories of the Gandalidda People and their time-honoured interpretation of the universe during this once-in-a-lifetime opportunity to discover the true brilliance of our solar system, shining from total darkness in skies free from light pollution.
