  • This is a wonderful place to visit. Make sure you drop in if you are near and see a great piece of Australian history. Take lots of pictures. Make sure you put your phone on airplane mode so it doesn't interfere with the radio dish.
  • I'd definitely go again. The drive up from Dubbo was great and the radio telescope was amazing. Great stop for young and old, there is an interactive museum , a cafe, and of course, "The Dish"
  • A definite MUST VISIT! Not only learn about radio telescopes and their role in space exploration, the 3D videos are first class and well worth the small price. Extremely well made, crystal clear in 3D, pitched at the right level for the general public including older primary kids. The Dish Cafe is cosy though bit pricey; expected given its location and captive clientele.
  • We really liked this place. Fascinating and interactive activities for the kids. Loads of info for adults. There is quite a bit to see. They have changing displays and some 3D movies (you have to pay for those). Suggest a couple of hours to take it all in.
  • Was extremely busy place. The information centre was great. But the cafe was too busy to try. The satellite itself was huge!! Great spot for photos in front of it.
