Ballarat International Foto Biennale



The Observatory is a unique setting to host exhibitions during the BIFB.

We love welcoming back  past visitors and look forward to welcoming new visitors to our beautiful heritage listed Observatory.

We hope 2021 will be as exciting as our past exhibitors programs.

When you visit, book in to view through our telescopes. The  Federation- Adcock Telescope has disability access.
