Hit key romance indicators as you watch the sunset over Sydney Harbour before gazing upon the stars

This Valentine’s Day, you can take your partner on an exploration of the only thing as expansive as your love – the sprawling night sky. The evening begins with drinks, canapés and music as you watch night fall over Sydney Harbour from the city’s highest natural point. Once darkness had descended, astronomical experts will guide you through viewing the night sky, with all its stars, planets and cosmic debris, through the South Dome telescope – the oldest working one of its kind in Australia.

You’re also invited to explore on your own via telescopes dotted through the courtyard, so you can freely point out constellations to your beloved, trace each others names in the stars, and revel in the miracle that is finding the person for you in this big, big universe.
