  • Chose a perfect night to go stargazing - clear, cloudless, a new moon. Saw beautiful nebulae and constellations. The host Rob was an excellent source of information; of both science and myth. Definitely would go again !
  • lucky we still have this place, after the government stopped funding. the volunteers are doing an excellent job keeping it open for tours and star viewing nights. look forward to more involvement in time to come.
  • Definitely worth going on a night tour. The tours are very well run, organised by knowedgible volunteers who are able to show you some great sights.
  • The guides are very knowledgeable and there is lots to see
  • An amazing tour of the stars and sky, highly recommend visiting during a dark night for a truly amazing view!
