  • If you have a interest in the heavens don't miss this tour. The history of astronomy in Australia is very interesting and the observatory has very informative displays of the history. You also get to sit in a dark room and view the southern sky on the ceiling with an astronomer pointing out many of the wonders i notes sky.
