Perth and Gingin Observatories

Perth Observatory

Star viewing tours have been operating at the Observatory since the late 1980s.

The tours began as a way to further promote the Observatory’s functions

and provide some much-needed revenue. Over the years, a dedicated band

of volunteers has worked closely with staff to help co-ordinate and run the tours.

Today, the tours are an integral part of the Observatory’s

outreach and education program.
