  • If you have taken the time to visit the Warrumbungles then you are close enough to visit the observatory. You will learn something new with the visit, well worth the time  more »
  • We went up on a windy day but the observation are is excellent and very informative and the view from the mountain top was wonderful..  more »
  • Siding Springs, set in the beautiful Warrumbungle Ranges, is a wonderful place to visit. It's a working observatory so the 'walk-in' visitors, which we were, are rather restricted in what they can see...  more »

  • An infinity of stars.... What a great place...
  • Come on, it's a massive telescope - what's not to like? Nice views too and the drive up kept us entertained and informed.
  • The drive up to the observatory is amazing from both directions, and once you're up there you will have an amazing view of the Warrumbungle National Park, and of course, the Sliding Spring Observatory. There's plenty to do at the observatory, you can take yourself on a self guided tour of the observatory, play and learn in the museum / discovery area and have lunch in the cafe. I'd give Siding Spring Observatory 6 stars if it were possible.
  • the road up can be quiet narrow especially when meeting a bus on the way up, but its definitely worth it all, the views are amazing and so breath taking. the big telescope is definitely my favourite.
  • The telescope is a big one, shame you can't use it, Dam research jerks hogging it all. Warrumbungle observatory is good for that doe and da lad you gives the tour is quirk af.
