FACET’s previously postponed workshop “Building Sustainable Cultural and Eco Tourism Opportunities Around Dark Skies and Natural Phenomena” will now be held on Tuesday 29th November 2022.

This event will feature two international dark sky and eclipse experts – Dr Kate Russo from Queensland, founder of Being in the Shadow – and Michael Marlin from the US, author of Astrotourism: Star Gazers, Eclipse Chasers, and the Dark Sky Movement.

Expert speakers will showcase the latest developments, including planning for the Ningaloo Eclipse on 20 April 2023, and explore the amazing opportunities our night skies and other natural phenomena – like staircases to the moon, wildflowers, pink lakes, ancient geology, giant tides, Aboriginal rock art, amazing wildlife and more – can offer Western Australia by adding a new layer to regional economies.
