VicSouth Desert Spring Star Party

booking your place at VicSouth

All forms of onsite accommodation + meals at the Lodge require AT LEAST a 2 night booking during VicSouth. The onsite accommodation + meals options, their costs, and your payment options are all described on the booking form.

Bookings for VicSouth 2017 opened on June 9. Download the 2017 booking form and return it to the Lodge by email, fax or post.

UPDATE Sep 10 -- all of the motel rooms and almost all of the bunkrooms have already been booked.

Additional night(s) of accommodation, before or after the VicSouth weekend, are available at the Lodge's discretion and subject to availability. The Lodge will, of course, have its normal lighting in action when it's not actually the VicSouth weekend, and there will be non-astronomer guests staying on site. These non-astronomer guests may include school groups.

Accommodation is also available in Nhill if you do not wish to stay at the Lodge during VicSouth. Arranging this offsite accommodation is entirely up to you and we make no recommendations. Except for beware of wildlife on the roads at night and don't arrive at the Lodge after dark (because your headlights will irritate people).
