WARO

The WA Radio Observatory has its roots in the old Mt Gungin Radio Observatory located in Bickley, near the Perth Observatory. Recently, Mt Gungin Radio Observatory joined forces with the Queensland SETI Institute and moved its operations to Golden Grove, Lower Chittering - a township just north of Perth.

The Golden Grove site is an orange grove located in a beautiful valley in Lower Chittering. The radio dishes used for making radio observations of astronomical objects share their ground with orange trees, sheep and chooks! :-)

The West Australian Radio Observatory shares its grounds with the Astronomical Group of WA (AGWA) who have an optical observatory at the location.

The WA Radio Observatory, presently under construction, will soon be conducting SETI (Search for Extraterrestrial Intelligence) programs and Solar Studies.

WARO is keen for interested parties and the general public to become involved with their research and construction efforts. Anyone interested in astronomy particular radio astronomy has the opportunity to participate in this particular branch of scientific research.

Downloaded this picture of the site from SkyView WA on the Dola web site - the dish doesn't show up that well because it's semi-transparent, but you can make out detail to less than a metre.
