Experience The Wonders Of The Outback Night Sky In Charleville Cosmos Centre Qld
If you spend most of your time in a city or major town, it’s likely you’ve never seen the Milky Way in all its shining glory. That’s why you need to visit the Charleville Cosmos Centre. It’s here you’ll experience the true wonder of an outback night sky, without street lights or pollution to spoil the view. High powered telescopes transport you into space at the Charleville Cosmos Centre, while knowledgeable guides share their expertise about the Milky Way galaxy, planets and our moon.
Charleville is where you can experience cosmos tours in Australia by day and by night
The observatory is popular with its night sky sessions where the Milky Way, star clusters, planets and nebulae seem so close through the telescope you can almost touch them. But did you know you can also get a closer look at the sun? With the aid of a powerful filter, visitors can view the sun through the telescope from May to September each year.
Your day time stop at the Cosmos Centre also includes learning more about astronomical science. You can hold meteorites and discover why Pluto is no longer considered a planet. It’s education in action, for all ages. Charleville is home to the best of outback cosmos travel, Australia style!
