Meetings: 7:00pm (April-September) or 8:00pm (October-March), second Wednesday of the month.

We meet at the King Edward Park Observatory, High St, with access through Stan Lay Drive off Camberwell Road (next to the High School).

We welcome people of all ages, although we ask that adults accompany those who are 14 years and younger. Special times may be arranged for interested groups from schools and other organisations. We hold at least two themed public events each year and also invite guest speakers to talk on astronomical themes.
