Are you looking for an Astronomy Fix, or perhaps an idea for a special present for someone astro-minded? Look no further!
Public viewings are booked via TryBooking here:
Please note that these nights are very popular and book out quickly. We release dates approximately two months in advance so if you miss out please check this site regularly and put yourself on our Trybooking waiting list.
Public Viewings are designed for members of the Public who would like to visit the Observatory to see what we do, who we are, and, with the help of our friendly Outreach team, do some viewing of the night sky through our telescopes.
Public Viewings cost $15 per adult, $10 concession and child over 5 (children under 5 free). All money raised goes towards maintenance and preservation of the Observatory. You can also buy someone a visit to an MBO public viewing as a gift!

Please consider the neighbours and drive in and out quietly using low beam only.
Please note: MBO will always be closed on days of Severe, Extreme and Code Red fire ratings, and on days of Total Fire Ban. Please see the CFA website for that information.
