What you'll love
In a dark island location, your guide will set up a telescope to help us get close and personal with the stars, gaze at deep sky objects and view several interesting constellations. We may even see a planet or distant galaxy! Our Moon Walk Experience is similar, with the focus on our moon, brighter stars and constellations. 

Your accommodation
Sunset Waterfront Lodge is located right on the water's edge at Tryphena, one of Great Barrier Island's gateways to beautiful beaches and intoxicating native bush and bird life. It's the perfect spot to relax and watch the sun set.
