The Gravity Discovery Centre and Observatory is a "hands-on" Science education, astronomy, Aboriginal culture and tourist centre, situated on the site of the Gravity precinct, in bushland, near Gingin, north of Perth, Western Australia.

It is a not-for-profit interactive science education centre, operated by The Gravity Discovery Centre Foundation Board Inc. It received government funding of $300,000 to cover the period 2021-2023. The Department of Biodiversity Conservation and Attractions manages the bushland surrounding the Discovery Centre and the observatory.

  • So much information for the children to get involved with
  • Had a wonderful time! The view of the Milky Way with the naked eye is stunning. The astronomers and physicists running the telescopes are very knowledgeable and friendly. It did get cold, so make sure to bring a jacket.
