The mind is not a vessel to be filled, but a fire to be lighted


This privately-owned astronomical facility was commissioned at Nambour on the Sunshine Coast, Queensland, Australia in 2006.  Interested members of the public are welcome to take part in our regular astronomy courses, which include nightly viewing through the Ritchey-Chretien robotic telescope.
