The Planets Concert and Stargazing

Listen to the amazing Sydney Youth Orchestra's Symphonic Wind Orchestra performing Gustav Holst's The Planets and more starry music before you embark on a evening of star and planet gazing.

Dr Luke Barnes from Western Sydney University will provide you with an introduction in the stargazing and our First Nations educators will share their knowledge and stories of the night sky from the Dreaming to the present day.

The Sydney City Skywatchers will provide guidance with their amazing telescopes, all whilst our campfires keep you warm on a winter's night. 

Join us for a beautiful night of music, science and incredible nature! Picnics are welcome.

Children need to be supervised and dogs need to be on a lead.
