the full moon tour

When the moon is too bright for our Fleurieu Stars tour, we take our minibus into Deep Creek National Park to check out the local night life. Watch and listen to the native animals & birds as the twilight fades into night time, while we enjoy a picnic supper. And then if the clouds permit, we'll view and photograph the full moon through one of our telescopes.

*** Tours Are Weather Permitting ***
We can still do this tour if it's cloudy or windy. But we won't do it if we're expecting severe weather, or if the National Park has been officially closed by Parks SA.
We will send a message to your mobile phone on the day of your tour, to tell you if your tour is cancelled or not. The tour will also be cancelled by us if there are insufficient bookings to operate.
If your tour is cancelled, you will be offered an alternate date (if possible), a refund, or a conversion to a Gift Voucher.
