Mount Burnett Observatory

Built in the '70s by Monash Uni for its Science Faculty, the Mount Burnett Observatory faced closure in 2011. Thankfully, a few members of the Astronomical Society Victoria banded together with a professional astronomer and saved it. Since then, it's enjoyed a new lease on life as a community astronomical observatory. You can become a member or attend the observatory's public viewing nights. They also have the Young Observers Group for junior astronomers. Keep up-to-date with events via their Facebook page.
