  • Arrive here early which allowed me and my son ample time to play around with the two whispering dishes at the front and look at all the exhibits before it got busy. The 3D videos are interesting and worth a look. Staff very friendly and the café was pretty good as well. All in all a nice way to spend a morning.
  • Brilliant facility for tourists Old and Young alike. Visitors centre was well decked out and The 3D movies were very interesting. Make sure to try out the Observatory Cafe's Award winning Meat pies in red wine sauce. Scrummy after a few hours of contemplating your place in the Universe. Showed my teenagers some of the footage and photos - Now They want to come with us on the next trip up there. Well worth the 4 and a half hours meander from Sydney.
  • Love this place. Fascinating history and a world class science lab. Great visitors center that's well worth a visit if you are coming anywhere within a couple of hours drive. Make sure you see the 3D documentary.
  • Great stopover from Dubbo to Orange. The 3D movie is very interesting. You would never expect so much science and history in such a place.
  • Great place! Beautiful night sky. Excellent for photography.
