REMTREK Astronomy located in DALES GORGE CAMPGROUND is NOT affiliated with the new astro nights running at the Karijini Eco Retreat.
Hi folks, I have been receiving regular enquiries as to whether or not I am recommencing my astro nights back at the Karijini Eco Retreat? This is not the case and I must apologize for any confusion generated. This misunderstanding is largely due to the photograph titled "Stargazing Tours" that recently appeared on the Karijini Eco Retreat website, it is in fact, a REMTREK Astronomy night dating back to 2013 when I operated out of the Eco Retreat. Long ago, I posted the same photograph on my "tours" page to promote how things look at my present location, at the Dales Gorge Campground Karijini National Park . This is a fantastic photo for the Eco Retreat to use as it clearly illustrates the brilliance of the Karijini night sky. Just to clarify, I operated my astro nights at the Karijini Eco Retreat from 2007 until August 2015 whereupon I relocated to the Dales site, a perfect 360 degree view of the cosmos from a billiard table level viewing area; a truly sensational real life planetarium..!
Since relocating to the Dales Gorge Campground Karijini in Twenty 15, I have had many Eco Retreat customers and staff venture over to the Dales campground simply to join in on the REMTREK astro nights, a lengthy round trip under starlight, not ideal..! The commencement of a new and exciting astro night based back at the Eco Retreat is a tremendous win for both park visitors and Eco staff alike, now regardless of where you might be staying within the absolutely breathtaking Karijini National Park, you'll have access to telescopic eyes on the superbly pristine Karijini night skies! A truly wonderful situation, as it will enable more and more park visitors to experience the overwhelming beauty of spectacular Pilbara dark skies.
