Visitor Centre

The Visitor Centre exhibits feature not only Astronomy but world-class research from across ANU. It is unstaffed and open 10:00 AM - 3:00 PM Friday - Sunday. Entry is free.

The Visitor Centre at Mount Stromlo has interactive astronomy exhibits and a new café with stunning views across Canberra. The refurbished centre will also give visitors a chance to observe sunspots and help astronomers find exploding stars.

Stromlo Café is now open and under new management. Contact the café on (02) 6125 3634. 

Augmented Reality App

The visitor centre also features augmented reality. Download the free augmented reality app ANU Space to enrich your visit with holograms of scientists, trips back in time, and tours of telescopes around the world.

We try to keep our public outreach and education programs as accessible as possible by charging minimally. If you would like to support our public programs, including our visitor centre, you can donate online.
