Our vision is for Tasmania to be a world leader in dark sky conservation and awareness.


Our Mission

To preserve and protect Tasmania’s night-time environment and our heritage of dark skies through environmentally responsible outdoor lighting.

For my part I know nothing with any certainty, but the sight of the stars makes me dream.
— Vincent Van Gogh
