Interesting visit - looked at the moon plus Saturn - Jupiter and a range of stars and constellations. About 30 people viewing at the same time - definitely worth a visit if you are in Charleville.

Main guide was very knowledgeable and her “helpers” were very patient with everyone. Everyone was given an opportunity to view the stars and not rushed. It was quite cool so warm clothes were a must.
