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 2021 Cancelled!
It is with great regret that the Queensland Astrofest Organising Committee (QAOC) announce the cancellation of the 2021 Queensland Astrofest. There are a number of reasons leading to this decision, among which are ongoing uncertainty surrounding health risks associated with SARS-CoV2, and financial viability due to reduced numbers due to safety concerns.
It is the hope of the QAOC that many of the concerns leading to the cancellation this year’s event will be addressed in 2022. The dates for the 2022 Queensland Astrofest (QA28) are 22 to 31 July 2022.
