Fire and Stars - Dinner
Ballarat Municipal Observatory & Museum
7.00pm - 10.00pm
Celebrate the prelude to the Winter Solstice with a night of food cooked over fire served under the stars at the historic Ballarat Observatory.
A night of mulled wine, forest walks, bouillabaisse served from a cauldron, wines from Pyrenees maker Summerfield, eel and Western Plains porchetta off the grill, a chance to see the moon through a century old telescope, hear about the comet that people thought signalled an extra-terrestrial visitation, explore the beautiful historic buildings housing telescopes that were the cutting edge technology of the late 1800s. Finish with sweet dumplings from the fire.
Rug up, wear your best outdoors boots, this is a casual, fun, intriguing and delicious night at the Ballarat Observatory with tours by astronomical experts, stories by award winning writer Richard Cornish and food by Peter Ford.
