Tooperang Hall Observing Site

ASSA runs observing nights south of Adelaide for members once a month. These are held at Tooperang Hall approximately 60km south of Adelaide on the Meadows to Goolwa Road.

The ASSA Coordinator for Tooperang is Michael Doherty (0467 812 423).


A variety of portable telescopes are used at these sessions. Members are encouraged to bring their own equipment, although this is not necessary.

Upcoming viewing nights

There are currently no scheduled upcoming events.


Getting to Tooperang Hall

Take the Victor Harbour road to Mount Compass. Then turn left by the Mt Compass Tavern onto Nangkita Road. Follow this road for several kilometres (passing through Nangkita) until it ends in a T-junction at the Meadows to Goolwa road.

Turn right at this T-junction and continue approximately 2km southwards; passing Hunts Rd (dirt, on your left) and the Tooperang turnoff (on your right). The Hall is about 200 metres south of the Tooperang turnoff; just past the church on the left (eastern) side of the road.

Look for flashing red lights on the gateposts which mark the open gate when turning off the road. If arriving after dark, please keep your lights low (on parking lights), proceed slowly, and someone will guide you to a park.
