Astronomy Australia Limited

Astronomy Australia Limited (AAL) is a non-profit organisation, whose members are Australian universities and research organisations with a significant astronomical research capability. We work with national observatories, relevant infrastructure providers, astronomers at universities, and the Australian Government to advance the infrastructure goals in the Australian Astronomy Decadal Plan 2016–2025, Australia in the era of global astronomy.

Our Vision

Australian astronomy is world leading and publicly valued. 

Our Mission

Astronomy Australia Limited (AAL) will facilitate access for Australian-based astronomers to the best research infrastructure, encourage the sharing of astronomical technical capabilities to maximise their value to the nation, and inspire Australians with these astronomical achievements.
