Our first video on our new Youtube channel is available, it is a collection of scenes from our National Science Week 2014 event "Stars in the Yarra Ranges" held in conjunction with CAASTRO, the ARC Centre of Excellence for All-sky Astrophysics.
Welcome to Mount Burnett Observatory inc. We are an astronomical society based at Mount Burnett Observatory, in the Dandenong Ranges east of Melbourne. The Observatory was originally built in 1972 by Monash University. In 2011 the site was formally taken over by our organisation and it now has a new life as a community observatory. Our aim is to preserve the facility and to use it to promote astronomy and science to the communities in the Dandenongs.
The Observatory for members and guests every Friday from 7:30pm. Our Young Observers group meet on Saturday evenings once a month.
