About: The Milky Way Galaxy is one of the most interesting naked eye sights in the night sky.

There will be a faint "river" of light crossing the sky. That's the Milky way. Full dark adaptation occurs after 30 minutes of not seeing any source of light, but this is not required for seeing our galaxy.

  • St Kilda Beach Penguin Viewing [FREE Event]

    St Kilda Pier

    ** Let's meet at the start of the Pier at 5:30 PM. Look for "Welcome to St Kilda Pier" sign (Photo: https://drive.google.com/file/d/1xb9cAY2ZDp6l_IixV-nbVx2ftshGhbsS/view?usp=sharing ). We will wait till 5:35 pm for anyone coming late. If you arrive after 5:35 pm, it will be hard to find the group and you will need to go around on your own. The penguin area usually gets crowded and it will be impossible to find us. Let's meetup see Melbourne's fairy penguins. How to get here: Take Route 96 tram towards St Kilda Beach via City. Get off at Stop 136-The Esplanade (St Kilda). St Kilda Pier is around 7-10 minutes walk from the tram stop. Another option is to take tram 12 and walk to the pier from the last stop. The St Kilda breakwater is home to a colony of little (Fairy) penguins. You can see the penguins swim and waddle back to their nests among the rocks of the breakwater nightly all year round, at sunset. Providing panoramic views of the Melbourne skyline and Port Phillip Bay, the pier is a popular destination for strolling, cycling, rollerblading and fishing. Whatever your preference, St Kilda Pier provides an unforgettable experience right in the heart of Melbourne. St Kilda Pier's history dates back to 1853 when the St Kilda Pier and Jetty Company constructed a wooden jetty to assist the early settlers in unloading timber, building materials and firewood to St Kilda. The historic St Kilda Pier Kiosk was built in 1904 and has undergone several renovations in its time. This is a FREE event!
