Norfolk Island Recognised as Gold Level Dark Sky Town

September 2, 2019 Destination Global No Comments Email Email

Norfolk Island is now a Gold Level Dark Sky Town recognised for its “excellent dark sky – suitable for deep sky observing and astrophotography”.

This follows Norfolk Island Tourism’s successful application to the Australian Dark Sky Register (ADSR) in which this popular holiday destination for Australians and New Zealanders joins a select group of locations that provide great views of the night sky which are accessible to everyone.

Norfolk Island proudly has little or no light pollution and boasts one of the darkest skies on Earth.

Not only is this an environmental accolade, it is a unique selling point to attract a niche market of travellers.

ADSR is a voluntary organisation founded in January 2015 with the aim to improve on and promote the preservation of the environment and the night sky through efforts by individuals, groups and communities to reduce light pollution caused by bad lighting practices.
