The Ballarat Dark Sky Community is about protecting the night Sky for current and future generations to share.

Recognising that the Wadawurrung/ Wathaurong have lived on this land and their culture is integrally linked to the night sky and has been so for thousands of years.

The night sky means many things to many people but the one thing we all share is the great weight of eternity overhead in the dead of night, when time could stop still and you can cast yourself back in time to the early generations of indigenous peoples.

It is now our generation of diverse cultures which is now looking after the environment , to pass on again to future generations.
