The Perth Observatory is currently undertaking several projects aimed at improving its facilities and restoring historical telescopes to working condition. These efforts are crucial in ensuring that we can continue to provide educational and research opportunities through our school and night tours.

We are a registered deductible gift recipient, meaning that all donations made to the Observatory are tax-deductible and donors will receive a tax receipt. We appreciate any amount of donation, which can be made through direct bank transfer (EFT) or by using the donation form provided on our project pages. Your contribution will be invaluable in supporting our mission to preserve and promote the history of astronomy in Western Australia.
