A very pleasant experience. First the sunset and then a lovely dinner under the stars. The star talk was corny and we would have preferred some understanding of the aboriginal vies of the stars Once again AAT Kings were late picking us up!

The Sounds of Silence dinner was a very memorable and special evening. We chose this night to celebrate our 30th wedding anniversary in late February. As everyone agrees, it is quite overpriced for what you get, even if it is in the middle of nowhere....More

Hi All-- We are visiting this August (2017) and are looking for an experience to see the Milky Way, stars, planets, etc. The Milky Way should be very visible the night we are there (August 21) because the moon is virtually dark. We thought maybe we could hire a private tour guide with some knowledge of the Milky Way, stars, planets. There are four of us. But I think what I am seeing is group tours and not private tours. I was just curious if there are any "private" or very small groups available. If not, any tour would be great. Regards, Jan
