Night sky tours at other locations, dates or times, and special events



Additional tour dates or times at Wirrina Cove can usually be arranged by us with a couple of weeks notice. The golf course doesn't get used much at night, but may occasionally be unavailable for various reasons.

Some of the "gaps" in our tour calendar are due to Full Moons. Read about why we don't do tours during full moons.

We can also do, subject to our availability: If you're planning a night sky tour at your venue, pick a spot that: We have used school ovals, golf courses, vineyards, rooftop car parks, private airstrips, private driveways, and "the back paddock" before.
Contact us to arrange the details including specific pricing. A contract and regular invoicing may be appropriate for regular work at a venue.
