Stargazing

The remoteness of the outback frontier provides some of the most spectacular stargazing in Australia. Free of the competing lights of cities and towns and pollution, the southern sky is truly the star!

The low humidity and minimal unnatural light in the Red Centre provide perfect conditions for heavenly views of the wide expanse above, free from pollution and ablaze with countless stars.

Cultural stories of the constellations are shared with guests at Table 131°. Exclusive to Longitude 131°  guests, Table 131°, is one of the world’s most remarkable dining experiences, featuring alfresco dining with local flavours in a private desert setting under the canopy of glittering stars and accompanied by an interpretive “star-talk”.

After dinner, settle back and listen to the Lodge’s resident astronomer decode the southern night sky.  Locate the Southern Cross, the signs of the zodiac and the Milky Way, all clearly visible due to the exceptional clarity of the atmosphere.  Learn the significance of the stars and planets in the Aboriginal stories of creation, such as The Pleiades or Seven Sisters story, part of an Aboriginal songline that traverses the breadth of the continent, from the east to west coast of Australia.
