Sydney Observatory

Sydney Observatory was once crucial to shipping, navigation, metereology and timekeeping. Housing the government astronomers who worked there until 1982, the Sydney Observatory was also essential to the study of the stars seen from the Southern Hemisphere. Today it has been transformed into a museum and public observatory, bringing regular mortals closer to the stars and planets that float around in space. Visitors can easily reach the Observatory by bus, train, ferry or car.

Ratings & Reviews

Even if you aren't a geek like myself this place is definitely worth a visit, especially if you can get in on one of the night tours on a clear night because that is when this place comes alive.

This was an interesting experience for a night-time viewing, from the film in the theaterette, through to the climb upwards into the stone tower to see the workings of an observatory, including peering through the telescope.
