Did you know that Aboriginal peoples are considered the world's first astronomers? Join Indigenous astronomer Pete Swanton and astrophysicist Dr Brad Tucker on Fellows Oval to stargaze using telescopes to navigate the skies. You will get a chance to chat with Pete and Brad to learn about Australia's rich and extensive history of stargazing and how it differs from Western methods that we often used today.

Warm clothing is recommended. In the event of cloudy/bad weather, stargazing will be cancelled and all registrants will be contacted via Eventbrite.
