Meals can be purchased onsite from noon Wednesday 4th September.
Brownie and crew will have their work cut out for them this year after treating us in 2012 to home made cakes, biscuits and other snacks throughout the day and into the late evening. The crowd favourite wattleseed cheesecake is back on the menu as is indigenous delights for those with an adventurous palate. Brownie and crew will start early in the mornings with breakfast either hot/cold or a combination. I am sure if we ask nicely Nicole will cook up a stack of pancakes. If you have any special dietary needs make sure you catch up with Brownie or Nicole when you arrive.
The popularity and success of Border Stargaze would not be possible without the valuable support of our sponsors and the amateur astronomy community. All funds raised through sponsorship are allocated to support our student outreach activities.
