A night sky filled with sparkling stars is something to behold. And there’s no better place to experience it than on one of the Great Walks of Australia.
Rest, recover and be at peace with nature beneath a blanket of stars so bright they seem to sparkle like diamonds. A canvas of glittering stanzas really is a once in a lifetime experience – and with no phone signal, the only “scrolling” you’ll be doing before you drift off to sleep will be with your eyes, as you make wish after wish on the hundreds of shooting stars you’re guaranteed to witness. This may sound like a bit of a dream, but it’s reality on many of the Great Walks of Australia.
When you’re staying in ecolodges and camps, often in remote locations, our walkers have the opportunity to see stars in their full intensity, planets, shooting stars and even the Milky Way. The added bonus in winter is that these starry nights are longer, so you have even more time to sit back and enjoy another of nature’s masterpieces. It’s all about enjoying the experience with a guide as the adventure and learning continue into the evening.
