Charleville Cosmos Centre

Visitors will enjoy the night sky with interpretive displays and a new telescope workshop and the existing Old Weather Bureau will become a new heritage Cosmic Time Warp attraction.

Project overview

Charleville is the largest town in the Shire of Murweh and the central stopover on the Natural Sciences Loop. The town is well known for its historical attractions and the Cosmos Centre and Observatory.

By completing work here, we are helping to create a sustainable tourism solution for a town affected by drought. This project will create local jobs and diversify their economy.

Our support will complement the existing cosmic tourism product and destination plans. The work will enhance the visitor experience through signage and landscaping.

Benefits

  • Build new heritage Cosmic Time Warp attraction
