We organise trips out of Sydney to get to areas of low light pollution, giving you the best conditions for stargazing. There are two kinds of trips we organise: single night trips, and camping trips.
Single Night Trips
Time poor? Hate camping? Not to worry, our single night trips wrap up early enough that you can get home before bedtime*. We hold one of these each semester.
*Given sufficiently late bedtime
If camping is your jam, then come to our camping trips! We stay at a site overnight so we can get as much time stargazing as possible. We hold these during the mid-semester and semester breaks.
On Campus Events
Long car rides and camping at late hours not your idea of fun? Don't worry, we also hold events so that you can enjoy astronomy from the comfort of the university.
View the sun through our solar telescope! We bring it out on occasion, giving you the opportunity to observe sunspots and solar activity.
Stargaze on Campus! Despite Sydney's light pollution, there are plenty of things you can see in the night sky with a telescope. Take a look through ours!
Test out your astronomical and general knowledge at one of our trivia nights. Grab a beer, and you might make some friends along the way.
