Stargazers of the 12 Apostles Coastline

First time stargazers, amateur astronomers and confident cosmologists alike can all explore the wonders of our southern skies with free rental of our 8 inch diameter Newtonian reflector telescope, Celestron Starsense explorer DX5 or Celestron Skymaster 15×70 binoculars.

First time users will be able to easily view craters on the moon and, depending on the time of the year (and with a little bit of persistence), may be able to view Saturn, Jupiter and its moons with our 8 inch diameter Newtonian reflector telescope.

Take a guided tour of the night sky with our smartphone connected Celestron Starsense explorer DX5!

Prefer equipment you can use on the move? Borrow our Celestron Skymaster 15×70 binoculars instead. These high performance binoculars are ideal for astronomical viewing or for land use – especially over long distances.

Call into the Port Campbell Visitor Information Centre to arrange free rental.


Please note that we have introduced COVID safe cleaning procedures that allow us to continue to hire out equipment
