About Charleville Cosmos Centre
BE AMAZED – VISIT OUR OBSERVATORY
Winter in the Outback really does have Star Appeal. With the crisp, clean night air and the wide open spaces, the stars seem to come right down to you.
And the very best place to observe the stars in the Outback is at Charleville’s Cosmos Centre and Observatory.
As a matter of fact, the observatory has, if you will pardon the pun, universal appeal…
It’s loved by big kids, little kids, the young at heart and even people who have absolutely no interest in the stars or astronomy.
The sheer beauty of the Milky Way, stretching from horizon to horizon, fascinates many visitors.
Our powerful Meade telescopes allow you to view objects in the night sky, thousands of light years away.
If you think you can only visit at night, be surprised! Astronomy by Day is as different as … well ….. day from night.
The Meteorite Talk: Learn about falling and shooting stars, hold ‘shooting stars’ in your hand, and be surprised at the beauty of some of the meteorites.
