 Abstract: We present a Bayesian isochrone fitting machinery to derive distances, extinctions, and stellar parameters (Teff, log g, and [Fe/H]⁠) for stars in the SkyMapper data release 3 (DR3) survey. We complement the latter with photometry from Gaia, 2MASS, and AllWISE, in addition to priors on parallaxes and interstellar extinction. We find our results to be in agreement with smaller samples of literature values derived using spectroscopic/photometric method, with typical uncertainties of order 130 K in effective temperature and 0.2 dex in surface gravity and metallicity. We demonstrate the quality of our stellar parameters by benchmarking our results against various spectroscopic surveys. We highlight the potential that SkyMapper bears for stellar population studies showing how we are able to clearly differentiate metallicities along the Gaia red (∼−0.4 dex) and blue (∼−1.1 dex) sequences using both dwarf and giant stars.
