The Gisborne Astronomical Club was formed in the 1960’s and has been in continuous existence ever since. Society members meet regularly and a junior society has since been established.
There are monthly G.A.S meetings for both groups. The society also runs a 6-week Introduction to Astronomy public lecture course which covers many aspects of astronomy and is delivered by great presenters.
