Perth Observatory is very pleased to welcome our latest group of Night Sky Tour Trainees. Our latest batch of trainees for Night Sky Tours joined us in October and have just finished their four-week Introductory Training Program. They are very enthusiastic and have a great deal of knowledge to share with everyone. Thank you to our wonderful Training Team and all of our volunteers for making them so welcome and getting them started. Make sure you say hi to them when you next join us on a Night Sky Tour this summer!

We are still looking for volunteers for School Day Tour Presenting, Administration and Fundraising. We’re a very friendly, dynamic group and can promise you lots of different things to do. For more information please click here — and become a volunteer today!
