Want to learn how to identify various features on the Moon including where various lunar missions have landed? They’ll have telescopes and astronomers present to help you do just that. There will be Moon and stellar object viewing with their telescopes, an astronomical talk and a tour of their historic observatory.

Dress for cold Ballarat Weather as it can be very chilly. If Cloudy, the event will still go ahead with their virtual night sky program in place of viewing at the telescopes.

Across Victoria’s Midwest, we acknowledge that we travel across the ancient landscapes of many First Peoples communities.

These lands have been nurtured and cared for over tens of thousands of years and we respect the work of Traditional Custodians for their ongoing care and protection.

We recognise the past injustices against Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander peoples in this country. As our knowledge grows, we hope that we can learn from their resilience and creativity that has guided them for over 60,000 years.

As we invite people to visit and explore Victoria’s Midwest, we ask that alongside us, you also grow to respect the stories, living culture and connection to Country of the Ancestors and Elders of our First Peoples.
