Dark Sky Tourism

Days underwater, nights under stars.

After swimming with whale sharks, humpback whales and all of Ningaloo Reef’s colourful creatures, you’re happy to reflect on this soul-filling experience. But the adventure doesn’t end when the sun goes down.

At Sal Salis Ningaloo Reef, something really special happens at night.

You’re blanketed by the Milky Way.

Have you ever seen a truly dark sky? Dark, as in, not one civilised light, in the middle of the desert, dark. You’re in for a surprise… a bucket lister, you didn’t even know existed. Sal Salis is situated in a designated Dark Sky area. 

Uninterrupted views of the Milky Way will be your backdrop to a candle-lit dinner. The soft glow of lanterns guides your way back to camp, as you soulfully experience the natural illumination of the stars. 

Sheer beauty that, even after the longest day, will keep you awake and wide-eyed.

Most people have never seen a dark sky… until now

Dark sky tourism is a small but growing trend. The majority of city and suburban dwellers hardly see any stars, let alone the Milky Way in majestic hi-resolution. 

The effects of light pollution are so severe, UNESCO now wants to include the sky at night as part of our human heritage. It’s such a wonder to behold.

April 2023, a special date for Sal Salis

In April 2023, Sal Salis is in the path of a total solar eclipse. Solar eclipse occurs when the moon passes between the earth and the sun, totally or partly obscuring the sun from our vision. 

For a total solar eclipse to happen, the moon’s apparent diameter is larger than the sun’s and all direct sunlight is blocked, turning day into darkness. 

April 2023… you won’t want to miss it. Please enquire with the team to book your visit to Sal Salis.
