Book the observatory for an evening
Have you always wanted to visit an observatory and see the night sky at the same time? Well, look no further – we at Mount Burnett Observatory can make that wish a reality!
Our Private Bookings cater to all experience and interest levels – with a smaller group than our Night at the Observatory sessions, our volunteers can answer your questions in much more detail, and focus on what YOU want to see, not what works for a large group. They are also very popular for various events, such as celebrations of birthdays or anniversaries – we’ve even had a few marriage proposals in our time!
These nights only run on nights where the weather is cloud-free, and can run a little bit late for the kids – 8.30pm-11.30pm (we recommend a Night at the Observatory session for the young ones, but keep in mind that these nights don’t guarantee viewing as private bookings do – at least at a Night at the Observatory you can leave a little earlier to make sure they’re in bed on time). We make these bookings for up to 10 people at a cost of $200 – any extra friends coming up will be an extra $10 each up to 20 people; we can’t fit any more than 20 adults at one time in our dome tours.
