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 and school holidays and run for 30 minutes.
Tour Times: 10.15am, 11.15am, 12.15pm, 1.15pm, 2.15pm, 3.15pm**
Bookings are required for groups of 10 or more by calling +61 (02) 9217 0111 during office hours (10am – 5pm).
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, including on 15, 16 and 17 April when it will be closed for maintenance.
** Please note tours run subject to availability. Session availability may vary at popular times of the year.
