The ASV is proud to bring you our second Sea Lake Astro Fest! After the success of our 2022 event we have decided to return to Sea Lake for a 2023 event. The event will take place over the Melbourne Cup Weekend and feature all things astronomical.
The Sea Lake Astro Fest is a specialised event showcasing astronomy experiences tailored for this unique location in North Western Victoria. Guest speakers with volunteers from the Astronomical Society of Victoria will share the wonders of the night sky with you. We have supporting events for the whole family, from Science for Kids sessions, to a Q&A dinner and a pub quiz.
Safely see the sun with our specialised solar telescopes, giving you a close-up view of our nearest star. Learn some of the stories first nation people shared about the night sky, as well as how we now understand and navigate our way across the sky. Each night we invite you to look through our telescopes and take a closer look at the night sky - Saturn's rings, the coloured bands of Jupiter plus a selection of galaxies, nebula and other deep sky objects. Join our astrophotography presentations to learn some of the techniques we use to capture amazing images of the night sky.
We are currently working on formalising and finalising these events and will have more information on them in the coming weeks. There will be event package options, single event options & the opportunity to learn all about the night sky under the pristine skies of Lake Tyrrell.
So be sure to book your hotel room quickly because they will fill up fast!

The Astronomical Society of Victoria at one of Victorias most stunning natural wonders. Lake Tyrrell is a shallow, salt-crusted depression in the Mallee district of north-west Victoria, in Australia. The name 'Tyrrell' is derived from the local Wergaia word for 'sky'. It is a renowned location for photographers and the perfect location to observe the wonders of the universe.
The ASV will have volunteers on hand with telescopes set up for attendees to view through. You will see planets, nebula, star clusters and galaxies galore!
