A very enjoyable night with the stars A very enjoyable night. Great to be able to see Jupiter, Saturn and even the distant Neptune and other star systems. Mr Starr (yes, that is his name) takes the time so everyone gets a chance to see the highlights. Highly recommended.

Starry eyed night Had a fantastic night with Peter Starr. We found him very knowledgeable and kept us captivated for the entire time. We highly recommend this to anybody looking for a night out with the stars. Thanks Peter.
Great experience Attended an Astronomy Night Sky Tour on a clear, moonless night ... the session starts with a short slideshow presentation about the solar system, planets, sun etc before being able to view various stars and nebulas via about a dozen telescopes of varying sizes. The use of a laser pointer to point out specific objects and constellations was both absorbing and amazing. A great experience. Wouldn't hesitate to return for a private session when next in Dubbo.
Excellent night out! Great experience for all ages. Laser pointing with Peter’s explanation was really good and useful. Allowed to take a photo of the Orion Nebula

Incredible memorable experience We went on a lovely clear night and were the only ones there yet the tour went on. Peter Starz (yes that is his name!!!) is the owner and gives a quick education lesson of stars, moons and planets. You are soon engrossed and beginning to feel just as passionate as Peter. His knowledge is incredible that we stayed for nearly 2 1/2 hours!!. What he showed us that night and taught us was unforgettable that we now feel quite knowledgeable about what the stars really mean. We now look at the night sky in a completely different way. There are around 10 telescopes that he can set up with bigger group numbers but only 2 were set up that night. We still were shown an amazing array of planets and stars. This is a must see and worth the admission fee. Well done Peter. We will be back.

Great to see jupiter, saturn and a whole host of stars in the night sky. Great to see jupiter, saturn and a whole host of stars in the night sky. try going in winter but if not possible, summer is ok except it gets really hot. An experience to remember.
Excellent- a must see in Dubbo Excellent! I’d definitely recommend visiting. They have multiple telescopes outside and the large main telescope. They reset the telescopes during the visit so you can see twice as much. A very detailed explanation as well. Really loved it.
Awesome Experience Whilst visiting Dubbo on a family trip my daughter-in-law suggested a trip to the Dubbo observatory so glad we went it was an awesome experience!! Peter Starr who was the astronomer hosted the event with his wife, gave a very informative and entertaining talk. So glad we went and would highly recommend this experience to anyone visiting Dubbo!
