Six of us did the night tour which we all enjoyed. We had a good look around all the displays and exhibits on display which was very interesting before we did the tour with guide. The guide was very informative and we each had a look through two of the telescopes where we managed to see Venus. We were unfortunate as it was a cloudy night but we still enjoyed it.

Such an interesting place to visit in Sydney. Great location near the Rocks with a fabulous view of the harbour. It’s free to visit and full of interesting artefacts in a magnificent historic building. The staff were friendly and helpful too.

Intimate and enthralling. Mitch, our guide was Mr Personality, we learned so much and enjoyed every minute in his company. To handle 19th century telescopes was like feeling history and he even calibrated the night sky to Tassie time for our subsequent trip to Hobart - and thanks to him we saw the Southern Cross and the Space Shuttle the next week. One of the best free things we've done, but spend a little on the tour; you won't regret it.

High above Sydney. Nice walk but strenuous. Gardens are beautiful. Interesting museum with lenses and photographs.
