Billion Star Rating

The endless night sky in the Pilbara is something to behold.  We are so lucky on Cheela Plains to enjoy uninterrupted views of the Milky Way and the billions of stars in our dark sky.  Astrotourism is a truly epic experience here.

For most of the year, the weather in the Pilbara is dry, meaning that we have clean air and no pollution which makes for a great stargazing experience.

Each year we host a 'Space Safari' event, teaching our guests everything from landscape to deep-sky astrophotography, including the techniques and equipment required to get great shots of the Milky Way, stars, planets, galaxies and nebulae.

If you have your own equipment, Cheela Plains is a fantastic location to achieve great shots.
