Thank you for your interest in our star gazing tour at the Blue Mountains Observatory. We hope that you will experience an amazing journey through our wonderful universe. At an elevation of 947 meters, the facility boasts pristine skies that resemble the conditions found in the Australian outback – but close enough to many shops and attractions in the area. The Blue Mountains Observatory is not simply “a tourist attraction” - it is a fully internet remote controlled professional research astronomical observatory, with world renowned telescopes and imaging equipment.
We cater for people 8 years and older, who have never seen through a telescope before, right up to professional astronomers. A very personal experience offered by no other facility - entirely tailored to your group's interests and enjoyment! This is not an observatory where you are waiting with 40 other people for 2 hours and only see a few objects. Instead, we have structured our tours in such a way that there will be no rush during observing time and you will receive the maximum opportunity for everyone in your group to enjoy the experience of a variety of astronomical objects. The tour is very comprehensive and educational.

Wonderful Experience! We loved the Blue Mountains Observatory Cottage. It a was peaceful bushland setting and a convenient base to explore the Blue Mountains. The highlight of our stay was the Star Gazing experience, we were blown away by all the stars, galaxies and nebulas! Thank you to Arthur and Ben who made it so enjoyable and informative. We now have a budding 7 year old astronomer! Robyn.

Brilliant! We had a very relaxing getaway in this lovely cottage. Karen.

Thank you Geoff, we had a lovely time and the cottage was charming. regards, Debra

"I was lucky enough to come across this gem whilst searching for an observatory in the Blue Mountains area. If I were to describe to someone not only the type of accommodation I was looking for but also the experience tied to it, this would be it. The cottage itself is flawless, amazing location, beautiful inside and out, very well maintained. Bundled with the stay is an astronomy tour, do yourself a favour and experience it! It is an additional investment, but well worth it. An observing experience like no other with a professional astronomer, you will both acquire a wealth of knowledge and be marvelled by the beauty of the cosmos. With out a doubt by far our most memorable stay from home." Regards, Jozsef

Hi Geoff, I would like to submit a review for your website/promotional material, on the Blue Mountains Observatory, please. = 5 stars (out of 5)
We took our four children for a country weekend break to the Blue Mountains Observatory. We expected to come away from the whole experience having relaxed, and we really did - the setting is beautiful, the property clean, spacious and had everything we could have asked for. What we didn't expect to come away with, was an experience which opened our eyes to something absolutely amazing. The Astro tour with Hassan was INCREDIBLE. We saw and learnt so much, his enthusiasm was infectious and we now have a permanent and revered appreciation of our stars, galaxys and planets as seen through the Blue Mountains Observatory telescopes. Thank you, thank you, Thank you very much. Felicity.
