Interested in bringing a group to the Canberra Deep Space Communication Complex?
We provide free programs for seniors, probus, university, special interest and cadet groups in our Visitor Centre. If you are interested in bringing a school or home school group, please choose the appropriate option under the Education Programs menu.
For seniors, probus, university, special interest, and cadet groups we generally recommend:
The earliest we will start a program is 9 am, latest is 3:30 pm. Program availability may be limited in ACT school holidays, due to the number of general visitors we receive. Due to staff availability, we also cannot run programs on weekends. Programs are only available on weekdays.
Our programs cover:
Why not time your visit to enjoy morning or afternoon tea, or even lunch at the Moon Rock Cafe, with gorgeous views to our antennas. If your group is going to visit the Cafe, it will need to be booked with the Cafe separately (bookings are essential).
We take bookings well in advance, so we suggest booking as early as you can to avoid disappointment.
Both guided and self-guided group visits need to be booked with us.
If you have any further questions about visiting the Centre or would like to make a Booking request, please feel free to contact us.
