Australia Telescope National Facility

Australia's leading observatories for radio astronomy are used by astronomers from around the world, 24 hours a day, every day, to learn about our Universe.

  • About ATNF

    The Australia Telescope National Facility is one of the world's most advanced radio astronomy facilities, and the only one of its kind in the southern hemisphere.

    Our Parkes radio telescope has been in operation for more than 50 years. Thanks to regular upgrades, it continues to be at the forefront of discovery.

  • Australia Telescope Compact Array

    Made up of six identical antennas, the Australia Telescope Compact Array is used by astronomers to study the structure and evolution of our Universe.

  • Mopra radio telescope

    Named after a nearby rock formation, Mopra radio telescope is helping us to learn about the structure of galaxies and how stars form.

  • Australian Square Kilometre Array Pathfinder

    A world-leading telescope in its own right, our new ASKAP radio telescope is also allowing us to test technologies for the much larger Square Kilometre Array.
