Mount Burnett also welcomes visits by schools, scouting and community groups. We have a program that can 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.
