Discover the wonders of the night sky!
The Association for Astronomy (in the Department of Physics and Astronomy at MQ) invites you to observe the cosmos with your own eyes at the Macquarie University Astronomical Observatory. View planets, moons, binary stars, star clusters, nebulae and bright galaxies through our professional maintained 12" and 16" in-dome telescopes. You will be guided by our experienced, passionate and knowledgeable astronomy staff, so definitely bring all your astronomy questions with you!
All are welcome, but minumum sales are required for a session to proceed, and capacity is limited to 40 people so we recommend booking early. Sessions run from 8pm to 9.30pm during daylight savings time (Oct-Mar/Apr), and 7pm to 8.30pm for the remainder of the year.
