3kms out of Three Springs is the local golf course where the Shire Council welcomes visitors to use the area around the club house as a casual observing site. You’re welcome to visit with telescopes and binoculars. It’s a perfect place to stargaze with the naked-eye too.
Occasionally, local sporting teams use the facility for evening functions and the lights will be on. If this is the case, you’re still welcome to use the area around the club house if the light doesn’t bother you. If you’d prefer a quieter and darker location, less than 1km further east along the road is a big open car park next to Three Springs Cemetery. The carpark is surfaced with loose blue metal which keeps dust to a minimum.
