About: The Milky Way Galaxy is one of the most interesting naked eye sights in the night sky. We live under light-polluted skies and to see a glimpse of the Milkyway, we need to travel outside the city. We run Milkyway events near Melbourne (40-50km away) and events in premium locations (over 100km from Melbourne CBD). Premium events will be clearly mentioned on the title of the event.
