World Astronomy Destinations


The Northern Territory, Australia

Australia's Northern Territory, home to the famed Uluru, kangaroos and plenty of wide open spaces in which to enjoy low levels of light pollution, is a great place to enjoy astro-tourism experiences. Earth Sanctuary World Nature Centre in Alice Springs offers educational opportunities for travelers to learn about the night sky and its impact on local wildlife and the creation stories of the Aboriginal people.

Visitors can enjoy a variety of programming and tours, like night tours, a "paint the night by moonlight" art workshop and more. For a more in-depth excursion, take a tour from Outback Sky Journeys Astro Tours, which specialize in astro-tourism excursions in Yulara, which is famous as the home of Uluru. Families or couples can enjoy a guided night tour complete with telescopes and tablets as they learn about the stars.
