Welcome to Queensland Astrofest

The Queensland Astrofest has been the major star party in Queensland since its inception in 1993, and is open to all amateur astronomers. It is convened by the South East Queensland Astronomical Society, the Brisbane Astronomical Society, the Astronomical Association of Queensland, the Amateur Telescope Makers of Queensland, the Southern Astronomical Society, and in 2013 we were delighted to welcome another local astronomy club, Star Gayzers, to take part in Queensland Astrofest and to inject some new energy into the event.

Queensland Astrofest 2020 will be held at Lions Camp Duckadang near Linville, between Friday, 14th August and pack-up on Sunday, 23rd August 2020.

The new Astrofest website is under construction and is not yet live.  Please do not attempt to register!!

Registration are not yet open pending the current COVID-19 situation. Keep an eye on the website and/or social media for updates.


The QLD Astrofest, at this stage, will still go ahead in August 2020.

The committee recommends anyone with significant health risks, who is planning to attend, to seek medical advice for that decision.

Our event has a site limit of 110 people per night and has an average of 140 seperate people attending over the 10 days.

As with any illness outbreak risk we will provide hand cleaning facilities, eg alcohol gel for use and recommend anyone who is showing symptoms or is in a household with communicable diseases, eg rotovitus or flu, to not attend.

The site is a school camp run by Lions and they clean the site before we arrive. The committee pays for subsequent cleaning and is considering daily procedures depending on the situation in August.

We will continue to be guided by medical advice from the Australian Governments, all parent Astronomical Societies and Lions Camp Duckadang.
