Flights will leave mid evening and head south taking you far away from the light pollution and high above the clouds and weather systems to chase the Aurora Australis in the Southern Aurora Zone. Departing from Sydney, Melbourne, Perth and Brisbane you will see constellations, stars and planets as you have never witnessed them before. 

Passengers will enjoy Qantas inflight service in both business and economy classes. Expert astronomers will provide information on route about how an Aurora is created, as well as pointing out their favourite night sky objects. They will instruct you on how to photograph an aurora and there will be a photographer onboard to assist on how best to use your cameras.

With different booking classes and a seat swapping structure in place to share the best view of this amazing natural display from the large Dreamliner windows there is an option for everyone.
