Did you know that you can explore space during the day? Look through our safe solar telescope before exploring the Universe in our Planetarium*. On a clear day, you can see the Sun, bright stars and maybe the Moon or Venus!
Day tours are available on weekends, public holidays and school holidays (1–28 January 2018) and run for 30 minutes.
Tour Times: 10.15am^, 11.15am, 12.15pm, 1.15pm, 2.15pm, 3.15pm^, 4.15pm^
Bookings are required for groups of 15 or more by calling +61 (02) 9217 0111 during office hours (8:30am – 4:30pm).
Day telescope viewing sessions take place subject to weather conditions. Please note, it is not safe to look at the Sun through any normal telescope, with binoculars or the naked eye. Doing so could seriously damage your eyesight.
* The Planetarium may on occasion be substituted for our Space Theatre.
^ Please note that during NSW school holiday periods, these day tours will not be available.
