The "OzSky Star Safari" is an exclusive event hosted by 3RF Australia on the outskirts of Coonabarabran, New South Wales - The Astronomy Capital of Australia.

OzSky's primary aim is to provide astronomers from the Northern Hemisphere with not only a unique Australian cultural experience, but more importantly a unique opportunity to experience the grandeur of the southern night skies through a number of large, high quality astronomical instruments without the need to transport large telescopes from one side of the world to the other.

Formerly known as the Deepest South Texas Star Safari due to it's founding attendees coming primarily from Texas, the new name "OzSky Star Safari" has now been adopted to reflect the expanding demographic of amateur and professional astronomers now attending this popular event on a regular basis.

The official dates for the 2015 OzSky "Southern Spring" Star Safari are October 9-16, 2015 and this event will be held in the NSW Southern Highlands, about 3 hours drive south west of Sydney.

OzSky 2016's official on-site dates will be April 2-9, 2016 however past participants normally choose to arrive in Sydney a few days earlier to explore the city of Sydney or simply to acclimatize to the local time zone. As such, we suggest that you consider making your bookings to arrive in Sydney no later than March 30 and depart Sydney no earlier than April 10, 2016.
