Now in its third year, Uluru Astronomy Weekend will once again showcase the vast outback night sky, where visibility is at its best. Hosted by Ayers Rock Resort, in partnership with the ARC Centre of Excellence for All-sky Astrophysics (CAASTRO), Uluru Astronomy Weekend will continue to be devoted to providing insights into astronomy, with the weekend held during the phase of the new moon for even greater visibility.

Led by host Robyn Williams and featuring some of the world's leading experts, the weekend will include interactive discussion sessions on energetic, fresh insights into the structure of the cosmos, dark matter, and more. It will provide those already familiar with the night sky new insights into our universe and for those new to astronomy an excellent introduction.

Not to mention evening activities making the most of a sensational night sky location, including an exclusive Astronomical Stellar Starlit Dinner under the stars, complete with some of Astronomy's own stellar stars.
