Adults & Young Adults Social Outing:

"Royal Botanic Gardens:  Melbourne Observatory Tour"

  • AS Adults and Young Adults are invited to a night Tour of the Melbourne Observatory, hosted by the coordinator of the AS Adult Group, Colin.  Meet at the Visitors' Centre (see below under 'getting there').

    Discover the fascinating history of Melbourne Observatory, built in the early 1860s as Melbourne’s home of weather forecasting, time keeping and star charting. Gain a backstage view of the Observatory and see the amazing night sky brought into focus with our powerful heritage telescopes! If the sky is clear, you will be able to view Jupiter, Saturn, the Moon and other objects through the telescopes during the evening. Note that the Tour goes ahead regardless of the weather but if it is cloudy, then you will not get to see the planets and other celestial objects. Further details of the Tour can be obtained from the Royal Botanic Gardens website 

    Cost: $25.00 per person (payable on booking). Group will be restricted to 12 participants maximum, so please register and pay promptly so you don’t miss out! Email Emma at if you need assistance to do this.
