MOUNT STROMLO OBSERVATORY SITE TOUR:

From Sunday 11 March 2018 -  09:30am
To Sunday 18 March 2018 - 11:00pm

Take a walking tour of the Mount Stromlo Observatory and learn about one of Canberra’s oldest sites. Mount Stromlo Observatory has been carrying out astronomical observations for over 100 years and, prior to the 2003 firestorm, had grown from a small outpost of pioneering astronomers to one of the great observatories of the world. Its history includes designing optical munitions during the Second World War, weathering two devastating bushfires, and earning one Nobel Prize. Come along and learn about the history, the science, and the future of Mount Stromlo Observatory. As most of the tour is outdoors, we recommend bringing a sun hat and water as well as a warm jacket.
