Stargazing

Amazing stargazing experiences await your visit to the Turquoise Coast.

With our dark skies and small towns, there are many locations to choose from where our iconic landscapes offer views of the stars and Milky Way providing unique experiences.

Regular stargazing events and guided tours are on offer (check our events page for updates), or you can simply take advantage of easy access to your own personal stargazing event and location.
