Astronomy at The Calyx

Join us for a night of astronomy, star gazing and storytelling surrounded by flowers in the Pollination display at The Calyx, a beautiful building in the heart of the Royal Botanic Garden Sydney.

On arrival you will sip on a complimentary glass of wine and then enjoy a short talk on the wonders of the solar system. The group will then be split in two. Half the group will take to The Calyx lawns to view the night sky from with Dr. Angel R. Lopez-Sanchez, who is an Astronomy Research Fellow & Science Communicator at the Australian Astronomical Observatory and Macquarie University. The other half of the group will sit on the lawns and be given a fascinating and informative insight into the traditional interpretations of astronomy by an Aboriginal story teller. The groups will then swap so you can experience both activities.

Sound like fun? Then purchase your ticket now for only $30. Book now to avoid disappointment.

One complimentary drink is included with each ticket purchase. Drinks and snacks can also be purchased from the bar. This event will take place regardless of weather. In the event that the night sky cannot be viewed other activities will be set up for you to enjoy.
