Event Details

Tickets are available until 4:30 PM the day of the event!

Session is 1.5 hours, from 7:00 PM to 8:30 PM.

The Association for Astronomy invites you to observe the cosmos with your own eyes at the Macquarie University Astronomical Observatory. View planets, binary stars, star clusters, nebulae, and bright galaxies through our 12" and 16" professional in-dome telescopes.  You will be guided by our trained astronomy staff, so bring any questions you may have.  All are welcome, but capacity is limited to 40 people, so book early!


The Astronomical Observatory is located on Macquarie University campus across from the Sport & Aquatic Centre. The observatory can be accessed by Gymnasium Road, off the corner of Culloden and Waterloo Roads. Turn onto Gymnasium Road at the roundabout, then take the first left into the parking lot.  You must get a parking ticket, which is free for 2 hours and after 8pm. The observatory is at the far northeast end of the parking lot.

Email us at starinfo@mq.edu.au for questions or concerns.
