Expand your universe with an evening of stargazing and fascinating Indigenous interpretation at Rouse Hill House & Farm.
Join us for a night of Stargazing at Rouse Hill House & Farm as Kirsten Banks, astrophysicist and Wiradjuri woman reveals the wonders of the night sky through Aboriginal and scientific perspectives on Saturday 18 August.
Tens of thousands of years ago, the Darug people observed the night sky from Rouse Hill. Stargazing is a family-friendly event offering visitors the unique opportunity to hear old and new stories about the cosmos and view planets and stars from professional astronomers.
Step back in time to explore Rouse Hill House by candlelight and experience an 1888 schoolhouse lesson about the Moon. Then try your hand at using a modern telescope and other equipment to see the planets and stars up close with astronomers and experts from astronomy societies on hand to share their knowledge.
