Astronomers say the best time for viewing our southern skies is during Winter so our passionate volunteers at the Perth Observatory will brave the cold weather to show you planets, and the galactic centre passing overhead revealing many deep-sky treasures that you can't see in Summer.
The tours run from June through to August. If there are clouds or even rain on the night we'll then provide you with an amazing guided tour of the Observatory. Either way, we give out hot chocolate at the end of the night so why not put on your warmest coat, beanie and boots on and join us on the hilltop for a very different experience.

Please be aware that step or platform ladders are used to gain access to the eyepieces for some of our telescopes. We do have a pantograph telescope (Click to see) for people in wheelchairs but please note that a range of head & upper body movement is required to be able to use this telescope. You or your carer will also need to position the wheelchair with precision in the dark. If you or someone in your group requires the pantograph telescope, you can let us know by filling in the notes field in the checkout section when paying for your booking and we'll make sure it's ready on the night.
