Star Gazing in Paddock Creek Reserve

tile image

Friends of Paddock Creek (FoPC) are holding an additional series of six stargazing events in the second half of 2024.

Paddock Creek Reserve is a good place to stargaze as it is relatively dark at night with open skies.

FoPC held a number of successful stargazing events in 2023 and early 2024 with the support of a Community Events grant from Moorabool Shire Council. Funding through the Stronger Communities Program enabled the purchase of the telescope.

The stargazing events will be held near the rotunda at Paddock Creek Reserve on Lyndhurst St – opposite the dam. A limit of 20 people will apply so that everyone can have a reasonable viewing and a chance to learn how to use a telescope. It will be dark and could be cold, so please dress accordingly. If you bring a torch a red LED is preferred, if possible.

A small charge will apply.

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.
