What people are saying:

Observatory Hill is located on a hillside that is not too high. Although it is not a place overlooking the city, it is indeed the commanding height of the rocky area to enjoy the view of the harbor. Several huge old trees and lawns in the park have become a place for local people to exercise and relax, as well as a place for wedding photos. The park has an observation deck, a battery and an observatory. This is the oldest observatory in Australia. It is open to the public during the day, and some stargazing activities will be organized at night. There are programs in Chinese. Address: 1001 Upper Fort St, Millers Point NSW 2000 Traffic: Along Argyle st Street in the rocky area, through the Argyle Cut tunnel, and walk along the signs for a few minutes to the top of the mountain Observatory opening hours: daytime 10:00-17:00; night guided tour on weekdays 18:30-20:00, Friday and Saturday 21:00-22:30, Chinese tour group on the first Sunday of each month
