Brace yourself for a cosmic adventure as we unveil the captivating mysteries of the winter sky. As the temperatures drop and the stars shine brightly overhead, our team of passionate volunteers will guide you on an awe-inspiring adventure through the celestial wonders that grace the winter sky. Leave behind the hustle and bustle of everyday life as we transport you to a realm of breathtaking beauty and cosmic revelations. Astronomers consider winter the best time for viewing the southern skies, as the cold weather provides clear conditions to observe the galactic centre passing overhead, revealing many deep-sky treasures that may not be visible in the summer.
In the event of clouds or rain on the night of your tour, our dedicated volunteers at the Perth Observatory will provide an amazing guided tour of the facility. Regardless of the weather, we always offer hot chocolate at the end of the night. So, put on your warmest coat, beanie, and boots, and join us on the hilltop for a unique experience. We’ll all gather in the foyer of the main building at the end of the night to enjoy hot chocolate and biscuits together.
