The ARC Centre of Excellence for All Sky Astrophysics in 3 Dimensions (ASTRO 3D) is a seven-year Centre funded by the Australian Research Council which was established in 2017.

ICRAR’s two nodes at Curtin University and The University of Western Australia are also nodes of ASTRO 3D.

Many of our researchers are members and work within the ASTRO 3D team to further both Centre’s research and outreach efforts.
