Detailed Monthly Information Flyers

Each month (bi-monthly for "Alumni" events) in the lead up to each OzSky Star Safari, registered participants will receive one of a series of emails containing useful information to help make your bookings, logistics and planning process as simple and efficient as possible.

These emails will be sent via a private mailing list which is also available for participants to use to correspond with others in the group in the lead up to, and after, the OzSky Star Safari. Once the email has been sent to everyone in the group, that document will also become available here for ease of reference.

These flyers contain important and useful information which we encourage you to read thoroughly. Many folks also find it very useful to print these attachments and place in a folder for future reference, however we are now also publishing a copy of those attachments here after they have been distributed to registered participants.

Topics which are usually covered in these emails will include the following:
