What If It’s Cloudy
At the Perth Observatory, we understand that the weather can be unpredictable, and cloudy conditions may affect the visibility of the night sky during our Exclusive Night Tours. Although our tours are non-moveable due to high demand and being run by volunteers, we offer an alternative experience for our guests in the event of poor visibility. In this scenario, we provide a fascinating astronomical presentation in the Lecture Theatre and a guided tour of the museum and the historical telescopes. Should the sky be clear enough to resume viewing through the telescopes, our normal night sky programme will continue.
We want you to have the best possible experience with us, and if you see less than four celestial objects during the night, we will refund 25% of the tour price. However, please note that if you choose to cancel your Exclusive Night Tour, the 10% deposit will be forfeited.
In the unlikely event that the Observatory must cancel the event due to factors such as loss of power, bushfires near the Observatory, or a Severe Weather Warning for the Perth Metropolitan region issued by the Bureau of Meteorology, we will offer a full refund.
Although we can’t guarantee clear skies, we strive to provide a memorable and enjoyable experience for all our guests, regardless of the weather conditions. We appreciate your understanding and flexibility and look forward to sharing our love of the night sky with you at the Perth Observatory.
