Watch the night sky from the Botanic Gardens

Round out your week with a journey across the cosmos on February 23 at Lakeside Lawn, located within the Australian Botanic Gardens.

Lay back and be transported to another world as the Australian Observatory’s Angel Lopez-Sanchez guides you across across the dazzling night sky.

The Botanic Gardens’ Aboriginal educators will be there to tell Dreamtime stories about the origins and significance of the stars, and their connection to the people of that land.

If you can’t quite see what they’re talking about then peer through one of the telescopes on offer to get a better glimpse of worlds beyond our own.

After your mind has been well and truly blown you can help yourself to a glass of wine or a hand-crafted beer to finish off the night. Tickets are just $29, with stargazers of all ages welcome.
