Ballarat Observatory and Museum




One of Regional Australia's largest collection of 19th-21st century working telescopes. Museum collection of astronomical artifacts, books and equipment. 3D Astrotour Theatre.

This is a unique situation; a municipal observatory, run by an amateur group. Apart from its astronomical use, the Observatory buildings and telescopes are of great historical interest, and were classified by the National Trust in 1989, and added to the Historic Buildings Register in 1992.
