MBO is the focus of a thriving community of astronomers of all ages, drawn together by a common love of learning about the night sky and the objects in it.

We acknowledges that the Mount Burnett Observatory is built on the lands of the Wurundjeri people and the Bunurong people of the South East Kulin nation.
