Overpriced for two glimpses of the moon and some basic astronomic rambling. Some reasonable equipment, but way too many people and just simply laziness not to enable viewing of any other celestial objects within the session. You will likely leave disappointed...

To improve the experience, they need to review the price as the meal was not served as per advertised with sweets being a chocolate brownie. 2 signature Cocktails were available but ran out after serving about 6 customers. Checked with others prior to communicating about Milky Way photos only to be blocked. Extremely disappointed.

Went to the Dark Sky Festival & found the event ridiculously overpriced, unorganised and very amateur. Did not receive milky way photo as advertised either. Emailed feedback & enquiry re missing photo & Earth Sanctuary couldn't even respond. Very disappointed. If you want to do stargazing in Central Aus just download an app & do it yourself. Food platter in picture cost us $184.55, what a joke.

This was my second visit to Earth Sanctuary and this time it was for the Dining Under the Stars evening of the Desert Skies Festival. Once again I am in awe. The dinner was very basic - BBQ'd steak, chicken and sausages, served with baked potato and pumpkin and greens - but it was cooked to perfection and tasted fantastic. The dessert was to die for! Unfortunately the cloudy weather didn't facilitate star-gazing, but I had heard the presentation before, and I still picked up things I had missed last time. Hearing international astronomers/physicists speak about Pluto was an added bonus. The music was great - both the 5 piece orchestra and the didgeridoo sounds of Gondwana. Altogether, an experience I will not forget. Well done Earth Sanctuary!

Dan and the team here are incredible. Wonderful hosts, very welcoming and kind, and did everything they could to make our experience enjoyable. This was my second stay here, and I would 100% stay again. Great learning experiences for young and old. An absolute must-do if you're travelling in Alice. The team has also done a great job in making the place as eco-friendly as possible. You can tell how much they respect the land as well as their guests.
