Seating 87 people comfortably in reclining seats, a private planetarium show in our 360-degree immersive theatre is a sure-fire way to get your guests attention.

Take your guests on an extended journey into the night sky with a Wine, Cheese and Astronomy package. Learn about the planets, stars and constellations visible in the night sky at the moment from the relaxing, reclining seats in the immersive planetarium. We’ll take care of the wine, the cheese and the astronomy in this easy to organise special night out.
Minimum booking of 35 guests. $45 per person includes two glasses of wine per person, cheese and crackers, the planetarium show and exclusive use of Stardome from 6pm-10pm. If the weather is clear, your guests will also have the opportunity to look through the courtyard and Zeiss telescopes.
For a seated meal we can comfortably fit 75 people in our Space Room. For a family day or cocktail event we can accommodate up to 120 people.
We have a number of catering recommendations. Have a chat with us and we’ll put you in touch with them.

Yes, we do! We have fairy lights, vases, plates, wine glasses, gazebos and bean bags all available to hire for your event.
During the day, you can use the back area of Stardome. At night, if the weather is clear, we will have courtyard telescopes out for you to look up at the planets.
With technical support and time, we can play almost anything on the planetarium screen. We work with our presenters to get your message up on the big screen. We may charge extra if it takes additional time or technical support.
We have parking outside Stardome, and there is parking on the road in One Tree Hill Domain on the way to Stardome. During the day, the playground at the bottom of the park can be used but be aware that it is locked from 7pm. Haydn Ave, next to the park and a short walk from Stardome is another option.
