8:00 pm to 10:00 pm (Sausage Sizzle from: 6:30 pm)

The Perth Observatory site will be closed for a couple of weeks from the second week of March for maintenance on our Main Office Building. The thing is, we can't sit and relax for that amount of time, we have to be showing the public the stars or we'll go nuts.

Thanks to Lesmurdie Senior High School, we're going to stay sane and we'll be taking our telescopes to the school and running our night sky tour from their oval. We'll have a sausage sizzle on the night and our Volunteers will take you on a grand tour of the Southern Hemisphere’s sky with a wide range of targets including Nebulas, planets, dying stars, and enormous star clusters.

What happens if it's cloudy?

In the event of a forecast bad weather, the decision to cancel the tour will be made at 2 pm on the day of the tour and all ticket holders will be contacted via email and phone using details provided during the booking process. You will then be given the option to receive a refund or transfer the booking to an alternative tour date/time. (Please ensure that these contact details are correct).

Please Note: Unfortunately due to the location of the oval outside the school's security fence there is only the staff toilet available and the school has asked that it only be used in the case of emergencies.
