Fleurieu Stars : the multicultural night sky tour

Discover the wonders of the night sky with our multicultural night sky tour, nestled in the rural hills above Australia’s first International Dark Sky CommunityCarrickalinga, South Australia. Immerse yourself in a 90-minute guided tour under the stars, blending traditional stargazing and modern astronomy. Join our small group tour led by an experienced local guide. Explore a night sky almost as dark as the Outback, but within an easy drive from Adelaide, McLaren Vale and Victor Harbor.

  • Multicultural insights. This is a unique astronomy tour that includes night sky interpretations from multiple non-Western and southern hemisphere indigenous cultures. Experience a celestial journey that transcends textbooks and cultural boundaries.
  • Accessible location. Located at The Forktree Project re-wilding property in the rural hills above Carrickalinga, our tour site is accessible to all cars and just a short drive from Normanville, Myponga, Second Valley, the Kangaroo Island ferries, McLaren Vale, Victor Harbor, and Adelaide.
  • Interactive experience. Discover the universe with our laser pointer and large telescope, in a small group, outdoors on a hill top under the actual night sky.
  • This tour is WEATHER PERMITTING and Cloud Forecasting is not reliable until your actual tour day. We will text a weather update to your mobile phone on your tour day.
  • In case of cancellation, we offer reschedules, refunds, or conversion to a Gift Voucher for this tour.
  • Please dress like you’re going to the South Pole, regardless of the weather forecast. It’s easy to remove layers to cool down if you’re too hot. It’s impossible to warm up using any clothing that you left at home.
  • We have bench seating for you, but you can bring your own portable chair to sit in if you want. Or a picnic blanket.
  • You can also bring your own binoculars.
  • The tour happens on a flat compacted gravel area, with easy access from the car parking area for baby prams, walkers & wheelchairs.
  • There is a “long-drop” toilet nearby but it’s not wheelchair friendly (yet).
  • Assistance Dogs are welcome, but for everyone’s safety all other animals are prohibited during tours. Please leave them at home, or inside your car.
  • Please tell your kids to leave any light-emitting shoes/clothes/jewellery, toys and gadgets at home. The light from these things destroys everyone’s night vision.
