From meteor showers and eclipses to planet and moon viewings, the sky is putting on a show and the best place to see it all is at the Charleville Cosmos Centre in Outback Queensland.
Using powerful Meade telescopes, the Cosmos Centre allows visitors to see 16,000 light years into space and offers night time Observatory sessions, Astronomy by Day experiences, Sun viewings and Universal Dreaming, introducing the Night Sky to you as other cultures would have used it.
While star-gazing in the vast Outback sky comes free with any visit, getting a closer look at the Cosmos through Meade 14 inch telescopes will be an experience you will remember forever. Also on-site, the Cosmos Centre is home to a 30-inch telescope, imagine the detail you can see with that one? Ask about the VIP Astro Experience.
The Cosmos Centre recently opened ‘The Astro Dome’ , a planetarium built to seat 50+ people and share movies specially designed for the 15-metre domed shape roof. This building is also back up for cloudy nights where you cannot see the sky because the cloud or rain is looming. A special movie filmed in Charleville has been designed for you so you will see and Outback Night Sky, rain, hail or shine!
The Cosmos Centre has been around now going on 18 years and is going from strength to strength. Also available soon will be a new interactive section for the Astronomy by Day. Wait until you see the puffersphere…A…MAZ…ING!
The Cosmos Centre is open 7 days from April to September and then in the warmer months we reduce the hours but are always willing to help you fulfil your holiday plans. To keep in touch simply email [email protected] or call (07) 4654 7771 for further information. Our products are also available to book online.
