Welcome to
The Port Macquarie Observatory

Port Macquarie Observatory is run by Port Macquarie Astronomical Association Inc. a non-profit voluntary group of people interested in all things astronomy and science. A new observatory is currently being built in Rotary Park behind Town Beach, a short distance from the centre of Port Macquarie.

Port Macquarie Astronomical Association members acknowledge the Biripi People as the Traditional Owners and Custodians of the local land, Biripi Country, and pay respect to the Elders past and present, extending that respect to other Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islanders present in Biripi Country.

Welcome to the future -

the new Port Macquarie Observatory is coming soon!

Port Macquarie Astronomical Association's new observatory aims to bring astronomy and science to our local and tourist communities in a stimulating and engaging manner.

A NSW State and Federal Grant of $4.86 million and 60 years of community involvement in astronomy through the Port Macquarie Astronomical Observatory have enabled this to occur.

The new observatory will be open during the day and into the evening with a program of events and facilities to cater for all ages and all levels of interest in astronomy and science.

Come to our Open Nights.

Look through the telescope at spectacular astronomical objects!

Want to find out about our universe? Come to Port Macquarie Historic Courthouse, held on Friday evenings (and Sunday evenings during school holidays).

Club members present a range of exciting topics and you can explore through our telescope spectacular astronomical phenomena. Get closer to the moon, Saturn or Jupiter. You might even see a nebula!

Entertaining presentations cover various astronomical topics for you to discover your place in our expansive universe. Following the presentation, you can observe an astronomical object(s) through our mobile telescope (weather permitting).

The presentation goes for about 1 hour and is held regardless of the weather. Come learn more about space and the cosmos!
