It was a wonderful experience. The meal was very good. Night sky was amazing!
However, we were charged incorrectly and it was not corrected.
Really good, the canapes options were not very nice but the main food was delicious. Had clouds so unfortunately didn't see the stars. Would have been good to have Aboriginal information on the bus - history of the local area
