  • Open till late. Pretty accommodating. Unfortunately couldn't do a tour due to an unclear sky. Prompt refund.
  • You will learn lots about. Star's and the solar system and use some. Cool telescopes try and pick a night with no moon the solar system is much visible in the dark
  • Highly recommend this tour, very knowledgeable guide and we saw some very cool stuff. The MOA telescope was particularly cool.
  • Far too expensive for our pocket sadly. Sounded really good but the cheapest 'guided tour's package was $95 per person for the 1 hr 15 minute guided star gazing with a large group and obviously share their equipment. We'll just have to use our own eyesight.
  • Beautiful place to see the stars, dont expect to see the stars like those in your google images. They dont even know when it will be like that too. Remember to book your stay in advance. The rooms were fully booked when we got there.
