Are you looking for an Astronomy Fix, or perhaps an idea for a special present for someone astro-minded? Look no further!
We have the following upcoming public viewings scheduled for 2017; due to high demand these are now booked via TryBooking so please click on the link below to book a place!
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.
Please consider the neighbours and drive in and out quietly using low beam only, or better still, parking lights.
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.
