With thousands of visible stars, Central Australia offers some of the best night skies in the world. Earth Sanctuary's award winning astronomy tour offers a wonderful experience to anyone who is keen to know more about the galaxy.

Why 'Swag' Astronomy?

Your star gazing experience is made easier with Earth Sanctuary's optional swag (star bed) to lay back and take in the full view of the night sky without having to look up. Swag-Astronomy combines the horizontal comfort of a swag (bedroll) which offers the perfect view of the stars!

With over 15 years experience in star gazing, Earth Sanctuary's astronomy guides gained their knowledge of the stars by sleeping in swags. This is the ideal way to explore the universe as your whole body and viewing experience is facing the sky.
