ATNF Reservation Form

If you are visiting any of the ATNF sites, please use this form to tell us about your travel dates, your accommodation requirements and the computing facilities you will need. This is the first page of a multi-page form; each of those areas is covered on a separate page.

  • Please read our Visitors Services Group Policies prior to completing your web booking form.

  • This form is for visiting astronomers, ATNF staff, and other official visitors.
    We cannot offer accommodation to the general public.

  • We have several sites: Sydney, Parkes, Narrabri, Mopra, Geraldton & the Murchison Radio-astronomy Observatory.
    If you are visiting more than one site on the same trip,
    • give all the details for your first destination,
    • look for the "book another visit" option at the bottom of the form.
      Set this to Yes, and click on Continue.
    • You will be prompted for the next destination,
      and then for the details of your stay there.
    • At the end, all your choices will be presented for checking.
  • Visitors to Geraldton and the Murchison Radio-astronomy Observatory should read the visitor's guide carefully, as access to the MRO will require authorisation.

For visits of less than three months, you may be able to obtain a visa through the Australian government's Electronic Travel Authority system. Otherwise, contact your nearest Australian Consulate, Embassy or High Commission.
