Explore the Universe at the Canterbury Astronomical Society’s observatory in West Melton. Members of the Society will be on hand to help unlock the secrets of the night sky through the wide range of telescopes at the observatory.

The observatory will be open every night of Kidsfest, weather permitting. A weather status update will be posted every night by 6:30pm on the society website at www.cas.org.nz as to whether we are open or closed. Please be sure to check there before travelling to the observatory.

The observatory is around 30 minutes drive from Christchurch at 218 Bells Road, West Melton.

Bookings are essential - there is no gate entry to sold out events. Numbers are limited. In the event of a bad weather cancellation refunds will be issued and you will need to re-book for an alternative date.

The Canterbury Astronomical Society (CAS) hosts Kidsfest as part of Community Outreach program.

This is a school holiday event for kids aged 5-15 and their caregivers, which runs independently from our normal Public Open Evenings.

Please note that we are unable to accept youth groups or unaccompanied adults during Kidsfest. All children (aged 5-15) must be accompanied by a paying adult. CAS Season Passes are not valid for Kidsfest. If you wish to visit us during a public open night, please see our schedule at CAS Events Calendar.
