Night Sky Observatory
The ‘Gems by Day, Jewels by Night’ Observatory Session is a fascinating tour into the wonders of the night sky above the Sapphire Gemfields.
The sessions are for Adults staying at the Rubyvale Motel. Bookings are essential.
While the sapphires take up your day activities, the outback sky provides diamond nights.
Melissa and I have stayed twice recently and would happily stay again, the rooms were neat, tidy, spacious and well equipped.
We spoke with both Michael and Jane who were excellent hosts. One of the main attractions to the area are the gems.
