Jervis Bay Beach Stargazing Tour with an Astrophysicist

Perfect night out for all ages, date nights, families, groups and locals, this unforgettable tour features Australia’s spectacular night sky away from the city lights. A wonderful opportunity to experience the Southern Sky and its celestial wonders only visible from the Southern hemisphere. The Jervis Bay's skies are very dark.

Jervis Bay Stargazing (sister of Blue Mountains Stargazing) has proudly won the 2022 and 2023 Bronze awards at NSW Tourism Awards.

A unique experience starting with naked-eye astronomy on Nelsons beach with wave sounds. An opportunity to check if we can see any bioluminescence (glowing waters!) in the sea!

The guide, Dimitri is an Astrophysicist PhD with 10+ years experience including Sydney Observatory, Mt John Observatory, the world-renowned astronomical observatory in Lake Tekapo (New Zealand) and Emirates One & Only Wolgan Valley. He is also a TEDx speaker and a cultural astronomer.
