Wongan Hills - Astrotourism Town 

Wongan Hills became an Astrotourism Town in August 2018. The Shire is proud to be working with Astrotourism WA to do our part in sharing our welcoming dark sky places where the stargazing is spectacular, protecting WA country towns  from light pollution, and growing this sector by creating events and activities.  

Low levels of artificial light in Wongan Hills and through the Shire of Wongan-Ballidu make for excellent destinations for stargazing and a variety of surrounding landscapes are an astrophotographer’s dream.

“Western Australia’s night sky is an asset worth protecting. Communities around WA are working to keep the night sky as dark as possible by reducing light pollution. While we’re protecting our night sky, we’re inviting visitors from around the world to share its beauty. At the same time, we’re growing our understanding of how stargazing brings people together.” - Astrotourism WA Founder, Carol Redford
