Dark Sky Experiences

Tasmania is covered by some of the darkest skies on earth. Join us as we turn off our devices turn down the lights, and tune into nature at Beaker Street’s Dark Sky Dinners, Retreats and Parties

Unwind under an endless quilt of galaxies as you learn about the cosmos and the world around you from talented scientists. Enjoy guided stargazing, indigenous sky stories, fireside talks, sumptuous local food and drinks, and fabulous music, plus a variety of other mind-expanding sessions depending on the event.

Beaker Street’s Dark Sky Experiences take place at stunning venues around the state, including Spring Bay Mill on the spectacular East Coast, McHenry Distillery in the historic Port Arthur settlement, and Table Cape House – perched at the top of a cliff overlooking Bass Strait. They are run in collaboration with partners including Dark Sky Tasmania, the Astronomical Society of Tasmania and the Hive.
