Establishment
“State Heritage-listed Perth Observatory is a unique education facility and tourist attraction where science and history come to life in beautiful State forest. It is one of WA’s oldest tourist attractions and an iconic State institution, established in 1896 just before the Commonwealth of Australia was founded. Perth Observatory hosts over 200 events annually including telescope viewings, heritage tours, school programs, star adoptions, public lectures, community events, Aboriginal-led tours and global astronomy. The Observatory was recognised recently as Finalist in the Premier’s Science Awards (Chevron Science Engagement), Finalist in the Perth Airport WA Tourism Awards (Tourist Attraction) and Winner of the Kalamunda Chamber of Commerce Tourism Business of the Year. Perth Observatory’s status as a key tourist attraction is fast being cemented, particularly with renewed focus on the Australian Space Age. The Observatory offers experiences not available elsewhere and its extensive 120-year history has resulted in a heritage collection identified in by the National Library of Australia as “unique in Australia” and of “national and international significance”. Perth Observatory’s survival is testament to the power of community to save and showcase the site. This former State Government Observatory is now managed by the Perth Observatory Volunteer Group (POVG), comprising almost 120 volunteers ranging from 18 to mid-80s, who last year contributed over 20,000 hours to the Observatory’s success. Perth Observatory has an ambitious future. A recently awarded Lotterywest grant of $958,890 will establish a “Living Museum of Science and Technology”; heritage clocks will be set in motion, the museum redeveloped, photographic plates digitised, tales of scientific discovery captured, disability access improved, and interpretative signage shared. A dominant feature is the creation of an Aboriginal Astronomy Centre celebrating 60,000 years of Noongar celestial storytelling through public art in a project led by internationally renowned artists Peter Farmer Senior and Sharyn Egan.”
