Welcome to Astronomy Australia Ltd

Our vision: Australian based astronomers will have access to the best astronomical research infrastructure.

AAL will achieve this vision by engaging with astronomers in support of the national research infrastructure priorities of the Australian astronomy decadal plan, and advising the Australian Government on the investments necessary to realise those priorities.
