The release of our children’s book ‘Out and about with Artemis at the Perth Observatory’, authored by volunteer Dr Janet Baldwin and illustrated by Sharon Tapscott, was celebrated in April 2021 with a Fairy Tea Party. Six unique fairy doors, specially created by our volunteers, were placed around the Observatory grounds for the occasion.

If you missed the tea party, or have not yet had the chance to attend a tour, come and explore the Observatory to find the fairy doors. We are open from 10 am to 4:30 pm on Monday to Friday, 1 pm to 4 pm on Sunday, and at night for scheduled tours and special events.

Our book ‘Out and about with Artemis at the Perth Observatory’ is available for purchase in our shop for $7.95. With Artemis as your guide, discover the fairy doors and learn interesting facts about the planets and constellations.
