Itinerary:

Valid for 01APR21-31MAR22:
A Cosmos Centre and Observatory vehicle will pick you up from your hotel to commence an Outback Stars and Secrets day tour. Travel to the Cosmos Centre where you will be travelling in Convoy discovering the secrets of what once was a Top Secret USAAF base during WWII. This fascinating story of a small town in the middle of nowhere, having a major role in the War in the Pacific will amaze you. Return back to the Cosmos Centre for a cool drink before you view the Sun through a specially designed solar telescope. See sunspots and solar flares and learn more about the only star visible in the day, our Sun. After your sun session, enjoy a light lunch and then join the guides for Astronomy by day - find out about shooting stars, why Pluto was kicked out of the planet club and be updated on the new discoveries in the solar system. Return to your accommodation at approximately 4.00pm. You will be collected again at approximately 7.15pm from your accommodation for transfer to the Cosmos Observatory. Your Cosmos Guide will conduct a small private session to view the beauty of the outback night sky through a powerful telescope. View distant stars, planets and nebulae and learn about this hidden beauty too far away to be seen with the human eye. Tour concludes at approximately 9.00pm, at which time hotel drop offs will commence.
