Experience / Attractions and Tours / Kingaroy Observatory
View the universe up close with host, astronomer James Barclay.
Examine the skies through the 35 cm Meade Schmidt Cassegrain telescope from the observation deck. There are a variety of shows to see, from Stars and Planets, to Moons and Planets, Day Shows and Night Shows.
The observatory is also in the process of applying for certification for the region to be classified a ‘Dark Sky Park’. The classification refers to areas that are especially spectacular to view the stars – without being intruded upon by city lights. Warrumbungle National Park in New South Wales is the only location in Australia that has the certification currently. We’ll keep you updated on what happens!
Bookings essential. Child friendly.
