Astronomical Societies

The following is a list of the amateur societies in Australia. A common philosophy within these organisations is the emphasis they place on public education. Inquiries from anyone with an interest in astronomy are most welcome. Where given, annual fees are subject to change. We are keen to keep the information in this section 'evergreen'. It would be appreciated if any significant change occurs (especially new organisations) that the society contact Quasar Publishing.

Many of these societies now have web sites. These can be excellent sources of information such as latest astronomical discoveries, society events and connections to other astronomy sites on the Web.

We are fortunate to have very dark country sky in Snake Valley, which makes our viewing nights quite spectacular. The benefits of membership, apart from the obvious friendship, is the ability to observe the night sky with more experienced amateur Astronomers willing to help newcomers, and to share knowledge with other experienced Amateurs.
Members are more than happy to give assistance and advice on different telescopes and accessories when newcomers wish to purchase such items and can give tips on better viewing techniques.
We also have a library for members to use containing Astronomy books and magazines, Telescopes, Binoculars and Telescope accessories, and we conduct Astronomy programs in local schools.
We meet and observe as a group on the closest Friday to the New Moon each month at 7:30 pm. Members and visitors are also welcome to call and arrange other Friday Nights. The clubroom is very comfortable and helps take the chill out on those very cold country nights.
