It can be confusing and frustrating causing you to quit. Stargazers Club WA is here to makes it easy and enjoyable!

Throughout the year, we run regular events and classes to help you discover astronomy, learn more about telescopes and find out what to see in the Western Australian night sky.

Being a member of Stargazers Club WA is lots of fun. It makes astronomy easy!

Gold and Platinum Membership includes free events, lots of handy hints and tips. Plus, you can meet others who share the same passion you do.

Meet Stargazers Club WA founder

Hi there, I’m Carol Redford. Welcome to my world of astronomy and stargazing!

I love helping newcomers and beginners learn the ins and outs of telescopes and digital cameras so they can embark on an astronomical journey.

I’m an accidental stargazer! I fell into stargazing when I and a good friend owned and operated Gingin Observatory for 5 years until 2012. A love of stargazing and astronomy has never left me.

I began Stargazers Club WA in 2013 so I could help inspire more people to encounter the wonders of our Universe and the beauty of our night sky!

I guess you can take the girl out of the Universe but you can’t take the Universe out of the girl!

I look forward to welcoming you to the Club!

Carol

Where Do we stargaze?

Western Australia Stargazing
The Envy of the world!

Western Australia is renowned for some of the world’s best Stargazing, here’s why:

  • Perth is the most isolated continental capital city in the world so you don't have to travel far from the bright city lights to see beautiful night skies full of stars.
  • With low humidity, clean air & very little light pollution, Western Australia boasts some of the darkest night skies in the world, making it an absolute mecca for Stargazers from all around the globe.
  • Country Western Australia is uncrowded and offers an array of ideal observing sites in welcoming country towns.
  • Being in the Earth's Southern Hemisphere allows us to see the best part of the Milky Way Galaxy all year round!

How Do I Start?
