DALES GORGE CAMPGROUND Karijini National Park
Now operating within the Dales Gorge campground for the 2018 season.
Hi folks, if you're anything like me, you love sitting back and losing yourself amongst a starlit outback sky! I caught the astro bug at age eight, peering at the moon through a telescope from the front yard in Perth, a sensational sight..! At age 11, I picked up the first of many astronomy books which is still hanging together, just - "The Hamlyn Guide to Astronomy", an awesome read. In 1997, I commenced presenting the night sky to small groups with a compact telescope from a snazzy little campground in a remote area of Karijini National Park. Kick starting astronomy nights at the Karijini Eco Retreat in 2007, I operated there until Twenty 15; in August of the same year, I stumbled across my present site at the DALES GORGE CAMPGROUND and was totally star struck by the incredible view of that cosmic canopy above! "Camp Constellation" at Dales is Karijini's "real life" planetarium, an incredible 360 degree panorama of the galactic dome with the silhouette of an equally impressive Dales Gorge landscape.
If you are planning a trip to the spectacular Karijini National Park and this includes a stay at the brilliant Dales Gorge Campground, consider joining in on one of my astro sessions which run most nights. Dark skies, a 360 degree panorama of the heavens, large portable telescopes and the gentle sound of the nearby cascading Fortescue Falls; put all of this together, and you can be assured that your night of cosmic discovery will be richly rewarding!
Wherever you might be, take time out to look up and take in the sights of that hypnotic starscape, a true feast for the eyes!!
