Explore the highlights of the southern sky on a Night Tour at Sydney’s oldest observatory on this 90-minute tour.

Join us as we ask big questions about space and astronomy and gain a greater appreciation of the night sky. Learn some of the basics of astronomy including celestial navigation using the Southern Cross, planetary movement along the ecliptic and the seasonal constellations of the southern sky. Use our telescopes to see the stars, Moon, a nebula, and the planets during this quintessential Sydney experience. All tours are led by our team of expert astronomers, who love to share their knowledge on all things astronomy – be sure to bring your questions.

We look at different astronomical objects every night based on the season, movement of the planets and the best views of interesting astronomical objects. Tours include the digital planetarium and a visit to our historic domes for telescope viewing. Sydney Observatory has three main telescopes including the modern 16-inch mirror telescopes in the North and East Domes and our 146-year-old refracting telescope in the South Dome.

Recommended for age 10+ and all knowledge levels.
