Your group visiting the telescope

Mount Burnett welcomes visits by schools, scouting and community groups. We have a program that caters for all ages (from Joeys and primary school children to Venturers and VCE students). Sessions take advantage of our portable telescopes for an "eyes-on" view of the sky as well as a host of indoor activities.   Programs are tailored to VELS and badges according to group.

Even if the sky is cloudy our visitors go away with stars in their eyes!

The observatory is also available for individuals to book for a guided tour of the night sky.
