Sydney Observatory - The Rocks
Offering breathtaking views across Sydney Harbour, Sydney Observatory in The Rocks is Australia's oldest observatory and one of the most significant sites in the nation's scientific history.
Beginning with Indigenous astronomy, take a close look at amazing historic and interactive exhibitions before climbing up into our famous telescope domes and exploring the sky with experienced guides.
At night, you could see the moon, planets and even beyond our solar system to stars and nebulae that are light years away. By day, you can observe the active sun through telescopes fitted with solar filters or perhaps even glimpse the brightest stars and planets in the sky.
Visit the 3D Space Theatre and see the universe come to life through amazing 3D technology. Decode the flags on the reinstalled flagstaff on historic Fort Phillip, or simply enjoy the heritage gardens and harbour views.
10am - 5pm daily. Nightly by bookings only. Closed Good Friday and Christmas Day
