Star gazing Darwin

Darwin Greek Glenti & other Queens Birthday events in Darwin


Darwin’s really turning it up this coming Queens Birthday (10th – 13th June) long weekend with so many events in Darwin going on around town.

Events on the long weekend

Love lamb and haloumi? Theres the Darwin Greek Glenti 2016 on the Saturday 11th and Sunday 12th, 2016. OPA, This is consistently one of Darwins best food and culture festivals, worth a try for the souvla, octopus and ouzo. Souvla is marinated lamb slowly cooked on a rotisserie and they usually sell over 2000kg of it on the weekend. Be careful of the Glenti Bombs, a dangerous mixture of red bull and ouzo, its probably better to stick to eating the sweets like galaktoboureko and cornets. Its a very family friendly event on the Darwin Esplanade held each year for the last

View Saturn, Mars & Jupiter at our very own Canapes & Constellations night, which is stargazing at the planets and galaxies with high powered professional telescopes from our 16th floor penthouse.  This magical evening under the stars begins the night viewing Darwin’s spectacular sunset and then stargaze at the planets. This may be the only rooftop in Australia ideal for Urban Stargazing.

You will see Jupiter (and its Moons), Saturn (its magnificent rings and many Moons), Mars, our Moon and the Jewel Box.

Guests coming along to our special evening of Stargazing can view through three Celestron 11inch diameter telescopes. These are the “high end” or “professional level” telescopes or the “BMWs” of the telescope world. Throughout the evening you will be served with selections of hot and cold canapés including oysters, and prawns along with an array of beverages.

Our host is an astronomer who will use a powerful green laser pointer, which allows people to see easily see stars, constellations and planets. Guests can see where their sign of the Zodiac is and can be taken on a fascinating tour of the night sky with an expert in astronomy.
