-A magnificent view of the Harbour Bridge and the sea. -Great picnic and photo spots. -Free entrance to Sydney Observatory and Space Exhibition. -The toilets in the Sydney Observatory are clean. -Give yourself 1-2 hours to stroll leisurely. Tips on how to get here: 1. Take the train to the Circular Quay. 2. Walk towards Argyle Street in the Rocks District. 3. There are 2 ways to get to the Sydney Observatory from Argyle Street: (a) just in front of the tunnel and go up the stairs at night, or (b) go through the tunnel and turn left to Watsons Road.
The lawn outside the planetarium can see the Sydney Bridge in the other direction is beautiful! And it's very quiet and suitable for picnics, the scenery is very good:) If you are interested in astronomy, the exhibition in the planetarium should feel pretty good! There are a lot of related equipment and introductions! Even people who are not interested in astronomy recommend the scenery!
We visited the Griffith Observatory in Los Angeles two years ago and it was truly spectacular. So, it is a pity to say that the Sydney Observatory cannot be compared with Griffith Observatory, but don't let this review stop you from visiting.
Sydney is located in rocks called a astronomical observatory (windmill) on the top of the mountain, is a astronomical museum, is also the only one can watch Sydney to astronomical phenomena
Geoff was an excellent guide with well targeted delivery for the adults and kids in our school holiday evening tour.
It's great to visit the beautiful museum built on a scenic hill. Through the telescope, there is a chance to see Venus in the daytime. It is very beautiful, but the prominence of the sun is even more beautiful. The planetarium exhibits perfectly showing the unfamiliar parts of the sky that we northerners have seen. It is educational to listen to the history of this place and its significance in the development of this part of the world.
