Join us in Ulverstone for the largest astronomy festival in the country as we celebrate the 50th anniversary of the Moon landing. This year we will be live streaming from Houston and talking with the NASA team about the Apollo mission from those who were there.
Be an Apollo 11 astronaut in VR, see NASA displays and live science shows. Our photography gallery will be on display where you can take home your own souvenir of spectacular images. Join us throughout the three days as part of a school group or as a curious guest as we have something for everyone!
