Located in the heart of Wajarri country, the Ancient Land Under Brilliant Skies festival is celebrating the land and skies of the Murchison region at the Murchison Settlement this April.

Over two days, learn how to cook in a camp oven, take a scenic helicopter flight, wander the local market stalls of artisan-made goods, participate in a bushtucker talk and admire Aboriginal art. There will be plenty of star-studded science during the event too, hear from experts on the world’s largest radio telescope, the SKA, which is being built on Inyarrimanha Ilgari Bundara, the CSIRO Murchison Radio-astronomy Observatory. A tour of the observatory will take place on the last day of the festival, which will be ticketed separately (details to come).

Circus acts, face painting, costume making and more make the outback come alive for our little ones. To relax, you can sit amongst the oasis of the Murchison and enjoy good food supplied by local caters and culinary enthusiasts. In the evening, enjoy fantastic performances or participate in a stellar stargazing event, including three laser-pointer tours of Southern Hemisphere constellations.

Come join us, and camp out under the brilliant skies on the ancient land of the Murchison Settlement.
