With low light pollution, the Buchan valley is a spectacular observational site for the timeless night sky. Whether you know all your constellations backwards, or you’ve never looked into a telescope before, whether you’ve had five trips around the sun or 95, this event is suited to anyone who’d like to learn more about the enchanting world that glows above us.

The Astronomical Society of Victoria will provide a short “Sky Tour” and will be on hand to answer all your celestial questions. A clutch of telescopes will be fixed onto objects of interest including constellations, nebula, planets and star clusters.

As for food, the two-course menu epitomises a hearty country feed. Plus, there’ll be a campfire to sit around, marshmallows to toast, creamy hot chocolate to sip on and warm your fingers, against a background track of enchanting acoustic sounds provided by Olivia Lay Music.

The setting for your unforgettable experience is The Stockmans Camp, a unique farm stay property nestled in the picturesque valley. Camping and caravan sites are set amongst beautiful gardens and shady trees, an epicentre of tranquility.

To fully embrace the full experience, guests are encouraged to bring your deck chairs, picnic rugs and cushions for lounging.
