The Milky Way is the beautiful band of stars that stretches right across the sky at night, and from May through to October is the very best time to see it.  Many people around the world, especially those living in big cities, never see this magical site but out in country WA, we get to see the Milky Way in all its starry glory.


We’ve put together a list of some of the best locations throughout the Wheatbelt to see and photograph this night sky wonder.


No matter where you go to see the Milky Way, make sure you are respectful of other stargazers and keep your lights low!
