kunanyi after dark

Explore stars and wildlife after dark on kunanyi

During the colder darker months, (May to September) , join us at the Springs on kunanyi / Mt Wellington to learn about our southern stars and unique nocturnal wildlife. Selected events will include professional telescopes and palawa cultural sharing of luwari wurungkali / night sky.

We will explore the southern night sky, starting with the Moon and our solar system. Then we'll look further out to the milky way and into deep space. After nightfall lots of wildlife becomes active including, possums, pademelons, wallaby, owls and bats.

We will spend an extended period outside in the cold and advise you pack all or warmest clothing.
