The Gravity Discovery Centre and Observatory is a "hands-on" Science education, astronomy, Aboriginal culture and tourist centre, situated on the site of the Gravity precinct, near Gingin, north of Perth, Western Australia.
The centre is operated by The Gravity Discovery Centre Foundation Board Inc and provides information and displays regarding physics, astronomy and Australian Aboriginal Culture specialising in gravity and cosmology. The site of the public centre is located in pristine Western Australian bushland.
The Centre offers unique cultural opportunities, guests can attend Aboriginal astronomy sessions, hosted by local Elder, Dr. Noel Nannup. Visitors are introduced to the rich cultural history of Aboriginal stargazing and astronomy.
The Department of Biodiversity Conservation and Attractions manages the bushland surrounding the Discovery Centre and the observatory, and strives to keep the area untouched (from weeds, litter, etc.). The surrounding area is abundant in seasonal wildflowers.
The Gravity Discovery Centre provides something that few other tourist destinations can match, an unparalleled blend of hands-on and fun scientific experiences each balanced to achieve all the benefits of both approaches to modern science-tourism.
