Stuck for ideas on how to host an out-of-this-world event? Looking for the ultimate gift for an astrophile? Experience Mount Stromlo through the unique opportunity of a private stargazing night or behind-the-scenes tour of the facility. All proceeds from private bookings help fund our public outreach and education programs.

Please note that the actual objects observed during private stargazing sessions will depend on the scheduled date and that in the event of cloudy weather, the session can be rescheduled.

We also offer gift vouchers for private tours and stargazing sessions. Gift vouchers are valid for two years from the date of purchase. Please contact us for more information.
