When it comes to once-in-a-lifetime bucket list experiences, they don’t get much better than this! This is your boarding pass to one of the most indescribable natural phenomena in the world – the Aurora Australis, also known as the Southern Lights.
Flying into the night sky onboard an exclusively chartered Qantas Dreamliner, you and your fellow Aurora-seekers will be joined by a specialist team of astronomers. You will cross the Southern Ocean in an adventure led by renowned astrophysicist Dr Ian Griffin. Lending his expertise to the planning of these rare flights, Dr Griffin will also form part of the Astronomer team on a number of departures.
Taking off under the blanket of night, you’ll soar high above weather systems and clouds to escape light pollution heading for the Southern Aurora Zone to chase the incredible Aurora Australis. Departing from Brisbane, Sydney, Melbourne and Perth this is the most unique way to view stars, constellations and planets as you’ve never seen before.
Whether marvelling at the Southern Lights in economy or business class, passengers will enjoy the trademark Qantas inflight service. While onboard, a team of expert astronomers will guide you through their favourite night sky highlights as well as providing information on how Auroras are created. There will also be an onboard photographer to coach you through the settings on your camera to successfully capture the magic of the Southern Lights.
With a variety of booking classes available as well as a purpose-designed seat swapping structure and the large windows of the Dreamliner, every passenger is guaranteed an amazing view of this incredible natural display.
