"The best time will be in the early hours of the morning, between 3am and 5am, and although the meteors will come from the east, you can see them anywhere in the sky".
It can be very helpful if you try to locate the radiant or the exact point at which the meteors will be appearing to emanate, which will be inside the Aquarius constellation in the eastern sky.
Ms de Sales Marques said: "As with any other stargazing activity, the best way to see meteors is to find yourself a spot sheltered from city lights with an unobstructed view of the sky and look in the direction of the radiant". One of the brightest stars within Aquarius is called Eta Aquarii, and these meteors appear from this area of the constellation.
"The meteor shower is visible all across Australia".
NASA describe the meteors as "a stream of litter left behind by Comet Halley, which is the most famous periodic comet, coming around every 76 years". It is usually active between April 19 and May 28 every year. But they move quite quickly - "blink and you'll miss it", Lord warned. If there is a large piece of debris in the mix, it will make for a bright moment for several seconds and it may even have a blue or green tinge. But this week you might want to look to the skies as well - and feast your eyes on a luminous night sky. But it is still worth a peak if the weather allowed.
Jacquie Milner at the Mount Burnett Observatory told 7News lucky stargazers could see about 16 to 20 meteors an hour during the peak.
The forecast on MetService's website isn't looking so flash for some parts of the country.

"It's going to be a really nice night", Musgrave told ABC Science.
The sky has been cloudy and rainy for Tuesday, but the peak of this shower will be before dawn, when we have a better chance for a clear sky.
"The North Island's pretty much a write off".
The number of meteors you'll see depends upon where you live in Australia.
"You just have to go out there and take pot luck, to be honest".
No special equipment is needed to watch a meteor shower, although people should pack some patience when heading out to spend some time under the stars. And because you would be looking at the moon through the densest part of Earth's atmosphere.it will appear to be a deep orange color (when rising or setting) and an entrancing pale yellow color (when just above the horizon).
