If you belong to an adventurous troop of Girl Guides or Scouts of any age who are seeking to navigate their way amongst the stars and who are working towards their Outer Space or Astronomy badge/award, then this focused evening of stargazing, navigating the night sky and big question answering is for your group.

You or your Group Leaders can book with the Mornington Peninsula Astronomical Society at their registered observatory in Mount Martha, south east of Melbourne. There you will be walked through the key requirements of the achievement award, followed by practice outside under the night sky with telescopes and binoculars.

Please note that only current Girl Guides, Scouts or Cubs or their Leaders or Parent/Guardian can book. Booking by other members of the public, are not possible.

The observatory is marked on Google Maps and on the Melways at map reference 151/E1.

COVID Safe: Online bookings are mandatory, with attendance numbers strictly capped.  However, should COVID capacity restrictions ease over time, it is possible that further seats may become available at a later date, so if you miss out initially, check back later or leave your details for the waiting list.
