Please accept our apologies Observatory Sessions are Unavailable till end of October 2019 due to health reasons

The ‘Gems by Day, Jewels by Night’ Observatory is a fascinating tour into the wonders of the night sky above the Sapphire Gemfields. While the sapphires take up your day activities, the outback sky provides diamond nights.

 

The powerful 14” Meade Schmidt-Cassegrain Telescope is perfect for seeing the magnificent clusters and colours of stars throughout the constellations. Look through the eyepiece at the ‘wandering’ planets and the amazing sight of Saturn’s rings and Jupiter’s many moons. Gain an insight and understanding of the sheer beauty, size and immensity of the universe. Come and enjoy our outback night sky wilderness.
