Events with the Department of Physics and Astronomy
The Department of Physics and Astronomy are involved in a number of university events throughout the year, such as Macquarie University Open Day and Macquarie in a Day, as well as hosting our own Department events such as our very popular and highly successful annual Astronomy Open Night. We also run a colloquia series.
If arriving from off campus, we are accessible by train or bus and paid parking is also available (from approx. $1/hr). For latest information on public transport options please refer to https://transportnsw.info/
During Session 1 our colloquia will generally be held on Wednesdays at 12pm. Venues will be confirmed soon. Our departmental colloquium series includes speakers from across all physics sub-disciplines, and is intended to be delivered at the senior undergraduate to graduate level, engaging an audience of researchers in areas as diverse as biophysics and astronomy.
Our 2019 colloquium series will commence on Wednesday 13 February 2019.
