Outback Stargazing Cunnamulla

Outback Stargazing Hotel Cunnamulla

Outback Australia is a great place for star gazing with crystal clear evenings and nights and wide, open space and sky. It’s perfect for astronomy and the night time skies can be covered with a blanket of stars. So, we at Hotel Cunnamulla are ‘going into orbit’ with Nasa and the Artemis 1 project on board the Orion spacecraft due to launch in late May 2022.
Outback Stargazing Cunnamulla
Gaze at brilliant stars, the Milky Way crystal clear here at Cunnamulla
Hotel Cunnamulla is having it’s name written in the stars ( well…. almost ) – Cunnamulla is having it’s name uplifted in Artemis 1, the first uncrewed flight test of the Space Launch System rocket and the Orion spacecraft.
The flight paves the way toward landing the first woman and the first person of color on the Moon!
All eyes will be on the historic Launch Complex 39B when Orion and the Space Launch System (SLS) lift off for the first time from NASA’s modernized Kennedy Space Center in Florida, so come on outback and join with us our ‘journey into space’.
The mission will demonstrate our commitment and capability to extend human existence to the Moon and beyond.
If you are keen on astronomy, you can also visit nearby Charleville with The Cosmos Centre – so make a trip here to us at Hotel Cunnamulla, a brilliant place to stay and star gaze off our balcony! We offer very comfortable and budget accommodation here in Cunnamulla with an excellently reviewed restaurant and heritage dining room – its the perfect place to stay for any outback adventure and experience.
In the early hours of the morning on March 18, 2022, the SLS rocket and Orion spacecraft arrived at the launch pad. Teams across NASA and the nation have worked hard to make this day possible, as the rocket gears up for its final testing before launch.
