Sit back, relax and watch the sunset disappear for a spectacular stargazing experience. It’s fun, it’s captivating and a worthwhile trip to the dark magical night skies of Queensland’s Outback.

Cosmos centre

From meteor showers and eclipses to planet and moon viewings, discover Charleville’s Cosmos Centre and all of its glory. Visitors are able to travel thousands of light years into space and uncover the many wonders of the night sky through powerful Meade telescopes. 

Cosmos Centre provides a unique and unforgettable experience, building upon existing knowledge of the formation of stars and galaxies, and reveals the beauty and meaning of coloured stars and the fascination of the planets and our moon.

Or if you enjoy being more hands on, ask yourself, have you ever: Held a meteorite in your hand? Seen the rings of Saturn? Viewed star clusters 17,000 light years away? Seen the craters on the Moon? If you haven’t, Cosmos Centre is an experience you will never forget!
