Stargazing World Record

Thursday, May 17, 2018

We are going to be part of attempting to break a world record in May!!

Thousands and thousands of stars, planets and galaxies fill our skies every night, but when was the last time you looked up and took a few moments to appreciate them? Always in a hurry to get our next destination or task, we seem to forget about the beauty that is right above us, around the clock, every day of our lives.

Bring stars back into focus, and take some time out of your week to visit us at Mt Barney Lodge on the 23rd of May and join Kate the Light Chaser, a renowned landscape and astrophotographer from the Scenic Rim, to lay back and relax and FINALLY be able to take in and capture the wonders of the night sky that surrounds us.

On Wednesday the 23rd of May, the ABC in partnership with the Australian National University is leading a Guinness World Record attempt for the “Most people stargazing – multiple venues” and so in turn, we’ve teamed up with Kate to have a ‘stargrazing gathering’ of our own. Bring along your telescopes and tripods and come and grab some great tips and tricks from Kate on how to find certain stars, planets and moons. When you register with us, we will advise you on what applications should be downloaded at home on your mobile phone before you arrive.

Come for just a few hours, or take advantage of our extra-special midweek offer that will bring stars to your eyes.

When you make a booking directly with us you can stay in one of our Rustic Huts for one or more nights at a discounted rate of $130/night (for the first 2 guests) plus an extra $20/person for any additional guests OR in one of our Queenslander Homesteads for one or more nights at a discounted rate of $220/night (for the first 4 guests) plus an extra $30/person for any additional guests. Camping is also available $16 pp/night.

To take advantage of this star-tacular deal your stay must include the stargazing night of the 23rd of May and will not be valid on Friday or Saturday nights. Linen hire is an optional extra.
