Mount Stromlo and Siding Spring Observatories consist of two observatories operating under the control of the Australian National University. The Observatories are part of the University's Research School of Astronomy and Astrophysics. In January 2003 bushfires destroyed more than $40 million of facilities and equipment at the Mount Stromlo Observatory. Restoration and redevelopment of the facilities began shortly afterwards.
