Scattered around the grounds of Perth Observatory are seven special fairy doors, hand-crafted by Perth Observatory volunteers.

We recently hosted a magical afternoon Fairy Tea Party, celebrating the release of the children’s book ‘Out and about with Artemis at the Perth Observatory’ by Dr Janet Baldwin. If you haven’t yet seen the fairy doors, or would just like to see the magical doors again, please come explore the Observatory and find them all.

We’re open Monday to Friday, 10 am to 4:30 pm, and on Sundays from 1 pm to 4 pm, as well as for scheduled night tours and special events ‘Out and about with Artemis at the Perth Observatory’ is written by Perth Observatory secretary Dr Janet Baldwin and lovingly illustrated by Sharon Tapscott.

Pick up a copy of the book for $7.95 in the Perth Observatory Astroshop. Artemis will help you find all of the various Fairy Doors, plus there are interesting facts about the planets and constellations to learn, too.
