Watching the milky way unfold in the night sky is truly magical. Witnessing it from Sullivan Rock and it is simply unforgettable!
We will hike from Sullivan Rock to Mt Vincent through lush Jarrah and Banksia forest and then out on to giant granite slopes to enjoy the sunset and amazing views from the peak. As we hike back to Sullivan Rock for stargazing, we will witness the forest transform from twilight to darkness. Whilst we devour a delicious gourmet spread, Astronomer Rob Hunt will take us us on a journey of the night sky and tell us about the stars, moon, constellations, planets, then you will have a chance to view it all through a 14 inch telescope. This will be quite a special starry night to remember!
