The Mapleton Observatory is a fantastic facility, based at Mapleton Sate School in the Sunshine Coast Hinterland. They have an 11 inch Celestron automated telescope and recently bought a 300 mm Dobsonian.
There is a Public Open Night once a month where anyone can come along and get a great view of the Moon, Planets and Galaxies. There is also helpful advice and information for enthusiasts of all ages and levels.
The Observarory is also open for private parties/bookings outside of the Public Open Nights.
