Night sky stargazing on kunanyi

8:00pm | 07/08 | Hobart


Experience the Southern Stars from kunanyi/Mt Wellington

Join Walk on kunanyi and Theresa Sainty at the Springs on kunanyi/Mt Wellington for an evening walk centred around our southern stars.

Inside a mountain hut warmed by the roaring fire you’ll soak up the powerful stories of  wurungkali liwari/night sky shared by Pakana (Tasmanian Aboriginal) woman and UTAS Senior Indigenous Scholar Theresa Sainty. Explore the southern night sky starting with the Moon and our solar system. Depending on the time of year we may be able to see other planets of our solar system. Then we’ll look further out to the Milky Way and into deep space.
