  • We were interested in the Observatory experience and the knowledge we gained, however it was expensive for our family of 6 at $24 per adult for one and a half hours. The presenters were informative, a...  more »

  • We visited in May 2017 and while the information was informative and the sky gazing at Saturn was brilliant, the overall show was a bit clumsy.  more »

  • We visited mid February 2017 and we were greeted by Marcus who was our guide to our universe and beyond. Marcus was clearly passionate about what he spoke about but was able to be approachable and explain things in a manner which was easy to comprehend. He took the time to allow our small group to have a good look at each star. We were lucky that we had about 40 minutes before the Moon came up and washed out the sky. The views here of the night sky are amazing. A rare sight and something that is hard to find anywhere else in Australia. A must visit if you are in the area it's worth the late night. We will be back in Winter for another look.
  • Very good observatory; warm and friendly guides. One the darkest "Dark-Sky" spots in Australia, for an excellent night sky viewing. We did a 9.00 PM visit and had amazing viewings of various planets and stars, including the Moon, Mars, Southern Cross, Great Bear and many others. Instructive and educative. Must book in advance on their web-site to be sure.
  • Simply amazing. A must do!
  • A wonderful and educational experience. If you go to Coonabarabran, be sure to spend an evening here. You will not regret it.
  • Awesome experience. Our guide was very knowledgeable and clearly had a love for what he was doing.
