Milky Way stargazing

Dark sky gazing in Barrington Tops.

Did you know that not all views of the Milky Way are created equal?

The centre of the Milky Way galaxy is in the constellation Sagittarius which is best seen in the southern hemisphere around -30 degrees latitude. The lack of light pollution around Barrington Tops makes the region perfect for seeing an extraordinary sight: the galactic centre visible directly overhead. City folk… prepare to be astonished!

Around Barrington Tops try Polblue Campground (-31.96); Careys Peak (-32.05); Rocky Crossing on the Barrington River (-32.04); or Woko Campground on the Manning River (-31.80).
