JJ Melbourne Memorial Reserve

The easiest approach is via Mona Vale Road, northbound, from the intersection with Forest Way. Several hundred metres beyond Forest Way, take the first right turn into Kamber Road.

There is a dedicated turn lane, but no lights. In another 100 metres, or so, you turn left into Thompson Drive and go all the way to the end.

Only vehicles carrying telescopes will be allowed through the gate.

All other vehicles MUST park on the road, where there is lots of room.

CAUTION – the turn into, and out of, Thompson Drive is tricky. Please ensure you arrive before it gets dark.

The field is set up as follows:

  • 1st half of the field – Deep Sky / Visual Observers
  • 2nd half of the field – Astrophotographers
