Shoalhaven Astronomers (SA) is a thriving community of amateur astronomers in the Shoalhaven. We cater to the entire Shoalhaven region and surrounds.

Membership Benefits

We hold monthly meetings at the University of NSW Shoalhaven campus. Each meeting usually commences with a session on observational astronomy followed by a presentation from a member of the professional or amateur astronomical community on a subject of interest.

SA publishes a monthly newsletter, the Astro Flyer (login required), which incorporates local and international astronomy news, articles about the latest developments in astronomy, astrophysics, and cosmology, and information about observing opportunities for the month ahead.

We run regular ‘dark sky’ observing sessions for members at nearby properties that have very little light pollution and excellent viewing conditions.

How to Join

Join at a Meeting

If you’d like to become a part of our astronomy community, please feel free to come along to one of our monthly meetings at the UNSW Shoalhaven campus —dates and times of forthcoming meetings are available in our calendar. Non-members may attend up to two meetings before being encouraged to join. When you come along, say hi and let us know you’re a prospective member. One of our committee members will be able to provide more information about what we do and how to join.

We hope to see you soon!
