Begin a stargazing adventure today by joining Stargazers Club WA. Master your telescope and discover the stars.

Stargazers Club WA is an astronomy club especially for beginners in Western Australia. We hold a variety of events during the year including telescope classes, casual stargazing nights (with or without your own telescope), astrophotography for beginners, visits to special places of astronomical interest, events with local amateur astronomers and more…

You’ll gain the confidence to choose a telescope to buy or learn how to use one you already own. We head out in the great outdoors, travel to new places and meet local amateurs who share the same passion as you. A few times every year, there’s the opportunity to leave the city lights behind for amazing dark night skies.

Membership Levels

  • Platinum is for anyone with a telescope who wants to kick-start their hobby and includes a private two hour telescope lesson plus everything that’s included in the Gold membership.
  • Gold is the best value for beginners with or without a telescope. It includes 6 tickets to Stargazers Club WA events and classes to help you decide which telescope to buy, learn how to use your telescope, members-only casual stargazing nights and much more.
  • Or if you just want to stay in touch, Silver will be for you.

What are Stargazers Club WA Members saying about us?

Many thanks for running the class. It was a big help. I think my telescope would’ve remained stuck in the garage without something like your class to give me the jump start I needed.

I enjoyed the lunar eclipse Stargazers Club event at the Old Perth Observatory. What a wonderful evening! Great to see some of the members, coupled with a lovely evening with lots of interesting things to do and look at. I look forward to whatever you plan next 🙂

I really liked your Stargazing Forecast about Sirius as it is a practical thing that kids can go outside and see. I don’t know that much, but really love being able to point out various planets and stars. I couldn’t do it unless I had read it in the Stargazing Forecast.

*Gold and Platinum Membership includes six (6) tickets to Stargazers Club WA events. Members can access one (1) of their included tickets per event, up to six (6) per year. Events are held in Perth, usually north of the Swan River. There are at least 12 Stargazers Club WA events held per year. In the future, Stargazers Club WA hopes to include events not far from Perth so members can experience stargazing under darker night skies.

^Platinum Membership includes a private 2 hour telescope lesson with Mark Davies from Earthside Astronomy. The class is held at Kingfisher Park, Ballajura at a convenient time for the Member. Mark (aka “Space Cadet”) has been working in the Astronomy field since 2012. He has been a volunteer tour guide at the Perth Observatory and a lecturer and Astronomer at Gingin Observatory (now called GDC Observatory). He now operates Earthside Astronomy providing astronomy outreach to schools and public across Perth and regional Western Australia. Mark has excellent technical knowledge about telescopes and astronomy. Stargazers Club WA is proud to work with Earthside Astronomy at many Stargazers Club WA events.
