Perth Observatory

Coming up to the Perth Hills for the Bickley Harvest Festival? Pop into the Perth Observatory with the family for an out of this world experience. There’ll be astronomy activities for the kids, guided tours of our historical telescopes, and talks to get the kids fascinated with space and astronomy.

Our guided site tours start at 10am to 4pm (times to be allocated) with tickets priced at $20 for adults, $15 for concessions, $10 for children aged 12-17, and free for children under 12. Families can enjoy the tour for just $50 (2 adults and up to 3 children). Our knowledgeable guides will take you on a journey through time, from the Observatory’s beginnings at Mt Eliza in 1896 to our move to Bickley in 1966 and beyond. You will get to tour the Meridian, Astrograph & Calver Telescopes, learn about timekeeping, and explore the museum to discover fascinating stories about the Observatory’s past and present.

Other free children's activities will be available on the day!
