  • Paul is a great and very informative host/ guide to the stars.
  • Peter is such a l lovely and knowledgeable old man who told us a lot about astronomy and let us explore the sky with two of his giant telescopes. We were quite lucky with the sky and were able to see nebulas, the famous jewel box and many more beautiful sky objects. His volunteering commitment to support astronmic research is impressive and with every word he explains, you hear his passion for this science. A simply wonderful night with some other nice and interested people. Clear recommendations.
  • Very interesting. Informative and patient guide who was happy to answer all of our many questions
  • Peter brings the heavens to life. Definitely worth seeking him out if you are passing through Geraldine.
  • Very Nice man with heaps of knowledge, had a great time here and saw the moon, Orion, etc like I've never seen before. Definitely worth the visit!
