Watch the night sky then quiz the experts in an evening of stargazing in the park

Centennial Park is one of the darkest places in Sydney and so it’s a perfect setting for stargazing. Swap Friday night drinks for a trip to the park and a chance to learn more about the universe. Professional astronomers from the Sydney Observatory talk about the planets, our galaxy and the cosmos, and you can have a go at their telescope, too. The Park’s Aboriginal educator will also share his stories about the sky. The evening ends with a campfire where you can relax, reflect the stories you heard, and meet other people.
