Dubbo Observatory Dubbo
Where are we going today?
It's so much fun to explore space, isn't it! You can see the rings of Saturn or see the craters on the moon so clearly you could reach out and touch it!
Dubbo Observatory is an amazing place to visit for the kids because it's one of the darkest spots to check out the night sky. And you know that what means - dark sky equals an amazing amount of stars because of the lack of light pollution!
Experience Dubbo Observatory with their 90 minute tour through space. You can immerse yourself in the Milky Way Galaxy, and perhaps see some things you never knew even existed! How does it feel seeing the moon or the planets with your own eyes so close!
There are fun and educational high tech telescopes which allow you to check out some of the most impressive deep sky objects you might ever see!

Only saw 6 messier objects for a few seconds each and that took 30 minutes. The other hour was a poorly cut together science video.
