You or your Group Leaders can book with the Mornington Peninsula Astronomical Society at their registered observatory on the Mornington Peninsula, 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.
