Fiordland is an ideal venue for live night sky viewing due to its complete lack of air and light pollution. The night sky mirrors the values that draw people to Fiordland; a vast, rugged, untouched and ancient landscape seen under an equally timeless, vast and unspoilt skyscape brings you out in goosebumps. Earth meets sky.

We are able to cater for schools and various other groups. We can tailor content, duration and price to suit. Please don't hesitate to contact Astronomy Fiordland to see how we can bring the universe to you!
