Join us for the inaugural Gippsland Star Party, a celestial celebration like no other! Set against the stunning backdrop of the Gippsland region, this exclusive gathering welcomes amateur astronomers of all skill levels to unite under the starlit skies. Whether you're a seasoned 'eyepiece viewer' or an enthusiastic astrophotographer, you'll find your niche in this cosmic community.

With its pristine dark skies and breathtaking landscapes, the Gippsland Star Party is a haven for stargazers and shutterbugs alike. Leave the city lights behind and immerse yourself in a weekend dedicated to the cosmos. Please note, this isn't a standard 'public viewing event'—participants are encouraged to bring and utilise their own astronomy equipment.

Mark your calendars for March 15th to 17th, 2024, and join forces with fellow enthusiasts as we embark on this celestial journey. Brought to you by the Astronomical Society of Victoria, Latrobe Valley Astronomical Society, and Mornington Peninsula Astronomical Society, this promises to be the first of many unforgettable annual gatherings.

Pack your essentials: swags, tents, camper trailers, or caravans—it's your cosmic home away from home. Don't forget your favourite snacks and drinks, along with a table, chair, and other creature comforts. And, of course, bring along your cherished telescope equipment to truly make the most of this astronomical adventure. Remember to equip your red light torch to preserve our night vision as we explore the mysteries above.

The Stockmans Camp sets the stage for this captivating event, providing the perfect space for forging new friendships, sharing knowledge, and marvelling at the universe together. Get ready to experience the Gippsland Star Party, where passion for the cosmos ignites, and memories are etched in the stars.
