Booking required


Take a guided walking tour of Hobart after dark. Learn how the lighting we add to our city impacts the way we use it and the environment at large.

This one-hour walk will be hosted by members of Dark Sky Tasmania, who will give a unique insight through the eyes of a lighting professional. As you wind your way through the Hobart streets you will experience various examples, both good and bad, of how electric lighting influences the way people interact with their city at night and the impact this is having on our planet.

Guided Tour Times: 8.30 and 8.45 pm Friday 13 Nov and Saturday 14 Nov
