At Perth Observatory Volunteer Group, we are passionate about sharing the wonders of the night sky with everyone, and that’s why we offer off-site astronomy events for councils, schools, and community groups. Since taking over the running of the Observatory in 2015, we’ve travelled to various locations, including Albany, Borden, Carnarvon, Gascoyne Junction, Geraldton, Hyden, Kalbarri, Kalgoorlie, Karratha, Newman, and many more in the Perth metro area. At every event, we’ve received a great response, and attendees have left amazed by the breathtaking objects we’ve shown them in the southern sky.

Our off-site astronomy events typically run for two hours, but we’re always happy to extend the session if people are interested. We can show you the Moon, planets, star clusters, and/or nebulae, depending on the date and location. We also provide a sky talk with a green laser, where we point out different constellations and their fascinating stories.

Our team of experienced and enthusiastic volunteers will bring telescopes, binoculars, and all the necessary equipment to make the event an unforgettable experience. Whether it’s a school group or a community event, we can cater to your needs and tailor the presentation to suit your audience.

Contact us today to discuss booking an off-site astronomy event with us, and let us bring the magic of the night sky to you.

What If Going To Be Cloudy

Don’t worry, we contact you a week out from the event to confirm the event is still going ahead and also we’ll discuss the weather forecast. It the forecast is bad, we’re happy to reschedule the event to another date.

If the weather gods pull a fast one on us and it’s cloudy on the night despite what the forecast said, we do bring with us images of astronomical objects so we can put them up on buildings/trees and people can still look through the telescopes and learn about our amazing. We also have 30-45 minute PowerPoint Presentations that can be done on the night as well.
