Dark Sky Gold Stars Sunset Dinner

Murray River, Lakes & Coorong, South Australia

The Dark Sky Gold Stars Sunset Dinner Tour introduces you to one of the darkest places on earth with virtually no light pollution – it’s held in the heart of Australia’s very first International Dark Sky Reserve, near Mannum in South Australia.

The evening starts with a short drive through Mannum to the Swan Reach Hotel, perched on top of golden cliffs with sweeping views of the mighty Murray River. Enjoy a hearty meal and connect with new friends while hearing the history of the Dark Sky Reserve.

Then immerse yourself in Aboriginal Dreaming at one of South Australia’s most significant Indigenous cultural sites. The Nganguraku people will welcome you to where Aboriginals have lived in the Devon Downs (Ngaut Ngaut) rock shelter for at least 5000 years and share stories about how the world’s first astronomers read and are informed by the stars.

Then it’s time to explore the universe from the cliff top using powerful telescopes and red torch lights. An experienced astronomer will guide you through the night sky and its dazzling display of stars, constellations, planets, clusters and galaxies.
