Perth Observatory | Towel Day Night Tour

Head to the Perth Observatory on the 25th of May to celebrate Towel Day, an annual tribute to the author Douglas Adams and his beloved series, The Hitchhiker’s Guide to the Galaxy. Bring your towel for an unforgettable night. The Observatory’s volunteers will be ready to take you on a grand tour of the Southern Hemisphere’s sky with a wide range of targets including nebulae, planets, dying stars, and enormous star clusters.

As Douglas Adams wrote, a towel is about the most massively useful thing an interstellar hitchhiker can have. And on this night, your towel can be used to wave in emergencies as a distress signal or dry yourself off after exploring our amazing night sky through our telescopes. Don’t forget to dress up as your favourite Hitchhiker’s Guide to the Galaxy character and you might win a great prize. This is a night not to be missed, so come along to the Perth Observatory and discover the wonders of the universe.
