PLEASE NOTE: This event has now sold out. Add your name to the waitlist to be notified if any spots become available.

Perth is the most isolated continental capital city in the world, so you don’t have to travel far from the bright city lights to see beautiful night skies full of stars.

Witness one of the best star gazing events in WA atop York’s own Wongborel (aka Mount Brown) complete with a sunset picnic and a unique cultural experience.

From 5:30pm. enjoy a hamper from York’s own Gather York overlooking the incredible vista.

At 6pm, watch Daniel Garlett’s Dadajaal Dance Company as they present the ‘Morning Star” dance before hearing Northam-based Ballardong Noongar storytellers will share stories of the night sky from creation time.

After the sun has set, Riley Johnston will be on site to guide you through an incredible star gazing tour. Riley Johnston is an engaging and highly experienced Stargazers Club WA Astronomy Guide who has been working within the astronomy community for several years. He is incredibly passionate about the night sky and is currently completing a Bachelor’s Degree in Science, Math and Education.


Details on how to access this event will be emailed to ticket holders two days ahead of it commencing.


Complete your stargazing experience with our Ultimate Antipasto Platter!

A carefully selected combination of artisan cheese, sliced cured meats, together with some of the best local produce, house made condiments and gourmet accompaniments.

Picnics will be delivered for you to collect on Wongborel / Mount Brown at the event and packaged with napkins and utensils. To order your picnic hamper, visit the Gather York website.
