• Gingin Dark Sky Star Party

The Gravity Discovery Centre and Observatory along with the Gingin Shire present the 2nd Annual Neergabby Star Party.

   Presented as an annual event, the Neergabby Star Party seeks to attract local amateur astronomers and the general public from across Western Australia to come and experience the dark skies of the Gingin Dark Sky Reserve. This event will be held over the weekend of Friday 17th and Saturday 18th March 2023. We encourage visitors to stay a while and explore the region and experience everything Gingin has to offer.

   The weekend will include amateur and public stargazing and amateur astrophotography at the Neergabby grounds on Friday and Saturday night. There will also be a series of public talks, tours of the scientific Zadko telescope, solar viewing and eco bush walks at the Gravity Discovery Centre during the day on Saturday. The weekend will both showcase the Dark Sky Reserve and highlight the connection between Western Science and Aboriginal Cultural Heritage.
