VicSouth Desert Spring Star Party 2019

Last updated 2019 Sep 22

It's on at The Lodge again! After months of uncertainty due to the Lodge being closed while it was offered for sale, it's recently been bought by new (and local) owners, and it's once again business as usual.

VicSouth 2019 occurs from Friday October 25 to Monday October 28.

The VicSouth public astronomy session is on again this year, Friday October 25, 8pm to 10pm on the Lodge's main lawn. Come along to this FREE event if you live in Nhill or nearby.   WEATHER PERMITTING -- phone the Lodge (03) 5391 5232 late Friday afternoon if the weather looks doubtful. Download the flyer here.
