The Space Place Observatory (formerly the Gingin Observatory)
Situated in the scenic town of Julimar in Toodyay, Western Australia. We provide a specialised Astronomy Experience for all visitors. We are here to teach, inspire & help people grow in their knowledge of space and the Night Sky is our classroom. Visitors get to experience the wonders of space! Outside under the clear dark night skies of Julimar you will see the highlights of the Universe and be guided by our knowledgeable Astronomers and night sky enthusiasts. Viewing the depths of space through our telescopes we will reveal and unlock at least some of the secrets of our Universe! Our astronomers who are on hand to answer your questions will reveal fascinating facts and explain what you are seeing through our telescopes! Just over one hours drive from the bright city lights we experience dark night skies for wondrous views of the stars, planets, galaxies and more. Arrive before the Sun goes down and the evening begins and you can meander through our natural Australian bush-land gardens. It is fun for the whole family!
