About the event
Event runs from approx 21:00-23:00 - Postponements to Sat 4th or Sun 5th if clouded out.
Venus, Saturn and Jupiter will be putting on a show, with the Great Orion Nebula peeking above the top of the trees toward the end of the event.
It is essential you book for COVID tracing purposes and because under the new COVID19 Protection Framework "Traffic Light System", given we are not going to be checking vaccination status, our limit will be 50 people assuming an "Orange" regional status. The event will be cancelled if the region is given a "Red" status because the attendee limit would only be 10. Please only RSVP if you are actually going to attend - booked people who do not show up are taking a spot from someone else who would have attended.
We recommend you wear a mask and ask that you physically distance from other household groups.
Under clear skies, even when the temperature is warm, it is possible to feel "chilled" when not active. Please bring warm clothes for your comfort.
Please remember that the Reserve has only "long-drop" vault toilets without lights and plan accordingly.
Please do not use white-light torches or headlamps in the reserve area during the event.
