In April 2021, we had a Fairy Tea Party for the release of our children’s book ‘Out and about with Artemis at the Perth Observatory’ authored but volunteer Dr Janet Baldwin and illustrated by Sharon Tapscott. For the tea party, 6 fairy doors were specially created by volunteers at the Observatory and placed around the Observatory grounds.

If you haven’t seen the fairy doors or attended the tea party or a tour and would like to see the doors again, please come to the Observatory to explore and find them. We’re open during the day from 10 am to 4: 30 pm on Monday to Friday and on Sunday from 1 pm to 4 pm. We’re also open at night for scheduled night tours and special events

Our book ‘Out and about with Artemis at the Perth Observatory’ is available to purchase at $7.95 in our shop. Artemis will help you find them and there are some interesting facts about the planets and constellations too.
