The NACAA convention has been held across Australia since 1967, and has become a significant national forum at which amateur astronomers can exchange experiences, stay abreast of the latest trends, foster co-operative activities between individuals, societies and the professional sphere, and network amongst their peers throughout Australia and beyond.
The next NACAA will be held in Melbourne over Easter 2014. Please check back regularly for updates.
Sorry for the delay in opening registrations for NACAA XXVI. We're working as fast as we can, but please be patient.
