Dazzling night skies, crystal clear air and glorious music ignite your senses in this once in a lifetime concert.

The concert stage is perched 75 metres above the surrounding landscape at the spectacular Jump-Up in the Australian Age of Dinosaurs Museum. Experience sublime music as the sun sets and the Milky Way explodes out of the night sky.

Featuring the music of Verdi, Tchaikovsky, Mozart, and Tosti Dark Sky Serenade embraces the romance of our outback setting through some of the most beautiful love songs ever written. Bring your champagne and red roses as we explore composers' evocations of love and loss through the ages.
