  • Fantastic place! Awe-inspiring! Going to visit the sun viewing session later! Excited!
  • A little cloudy and a bit chilly but that could not damper a great tour around the Charleville Airport. Monique was our informative guide the knowledge she had gathered and continues to researched was fantastic, but the secret is out Monique has disclosed and devulged all, who could have imagined. For those who have travelled to Charleville and did not take the tour pencil it in for your next visit if you are heading that way make it a priority. Thankyou again Monique good luck with your research. Boris and Lynne Dunn
  • Absolutely fascinating, well worth a visit.
  • Compulsory visit if you are within 200 kms of Charleville! Fascinating exhibition of astronomical information.
