Head out with us to Moogerah Dam for an afternoon BYO BBQ, then enjoy an evening of casual observing and/or photography under the stars.

Meet at 4pm to set up and enjoy spectacular views of Moogerah Lake, mountains, and the Milky May. This is a great opportunity for new members to learn a little about the night skies, using a telescope, and astrophotography.

Please note that this is a public picnic area, and while the area is sufficiently dark, dark sky rules cannot be strictly enforced.


4pm till late. Please check the event calendar for dates.
