Star gazing in Paddock Creek Reserve


Friends of Paddock Creek in conjunction with the Ballarat Astronomical Society will be holding three stargazing events during September, October and November 2023. Paddock Creek Reserve is a good place to stargaze as it is relatively dark and offers relatively open skies to the west and south.

A Community Events grant from Moorabool Shire Council is supporting the group to stage the events and a Stronger Communities Program grant from the Federal Government has enabled us to purchase a telescope. Ballarat Astronomical Society will assist in organising the Saturday evening events to be held near the rotunda at Paddock Creek Reserve on Lyndhurst St. A limit of 30 people will apply for each evening so that everyone can have a reasonable viewing and a chance to learn how to use a telescope.
