Astronomy Night at Western Sydney University – A Great Night Out for the Entire Family During the School Holidays

The night skies can be absolutely stunning, but how much do you and your family know about the stars? The Western Sydney University Observatory holds regular Astronomy Nights, and it’s an excellent opportunity to learn more about the night sky. These nights include a presentation and a short 3-D movie, and you can view the night sky through a range of telescopes, depending on the weather, of course! Usually, each astronomy night has a theme, and there is a huge range of dates from now until November.

These Astronomy Nights are a great way to do something different with the whole family that is exciting, fun and just a little educational too! The cost is very reasonable at $18 an adult and $12 for a child, or you can purchase a family ticket for $50 that includes an entry for two adults and two children. Children under age 3 are free. Booking is essential because as you can imagine, these nights are very popular. Also, space mad kids might be interested in the University’s rocket workshop, which is suitable for children age 4 to 12.
