Detailed Monthly Information Flyers

Each month between now and March 2022, 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, OzSky 2022.

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 publishing a copy of those attachments here.

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

  1. OzSky Overview and Basic Trip Planning
  2. Bookings and Logistics
  3. Introducing your OzSky Volunteer Hosts
  4. Observing at The OzSky Star Safari
  5. Weather & Climate Expectations
  6. Train Bookings
  7. Suggested Day Trips & Activities
  8. Observing Lists and Other Resources
  9. Participant Profiles - Sent by email only
  10. Last Minute Reminders
  11. Final Wrap-Up Report
