Since this continent was first inhabited tens of thousands of years ago, Australians have looked up and wondered about the southern stars and the star-spangled Milky Way. The same sense of wonder and curiosity drives astronomy today. Indeed it was an astronomical event (a transit of Venus) that led James Cook to map Australia's eastern coast in 1770.

Since that time, Australian astronomers have made major contributions to the science, in part because of the continent's advantageous Southern Hemisphere location and generally clear skies, but also because of their innovations and skills.
