Pre-conference tour

We are working on putting a pre-conference tour together, taking visitors to “The Dish” (the Parkes radio telescope), the Australia Telescope Compact Array in Narrabri, and Siding Spring Observatory
The tour will take 4 days and cost about A$400-500 per person. We will update this information as the planning develops.
