Greg runs a truly fascinating evening of star gazing, not just pointing out stars and planets but really making you think beyond planet earth. Amazing knowledge and stargazing equipment makes for an educational and entertaining evening for the whole family.

Greg Quicke runs a fabulous tour of the stars and the planets which fascinated our 7 year olds and the adults as well. His explanations were well balanced with fact and humour and his telescopes are very well set up.

Greg Quicke and his partner Sobrane Simcock (of Gallery Sobrane) host a wonderful evening of gazing at the stars and planets. With Greg's easy and passionate commentary, it is impossible not to experience a renewed interest in the night sky. The hot chocolate and Anzac...More

Greg Quicke is an extrovert! A largely self-taught former pearl-diver, with a vast Bernard Shaw-type beard, he knows his stars! A bus-trip to a remote bush location was followed by visitors staggering along a trail marked by dim red lights to an open area where...More

Great to see someone making astronomy so accessible! It was a very entertaining and informative evening. A great showman! Definitely worth giving a go if you have an evening spare. If you are interested in astronomy and had not done any study on the topic...More
