Dubbo Observatory - Dubbo

About

At the Dubbo Observatory you can zoom into the moon and solar system, discover the Milky Way and beyond with the most high-tech telescopes in the West. Be informed and entertained with the 90 minute program that commences with an audio-visual, then venture out into the night sky and view the stars through the telescopes.

Dubbo Observatory is located adjacent to the Taronga Western Plains Zoo. Guided astronomy sessions are conducted at night and during the day and there is an 18 hole astronomy themed mini golf course. There is a well stocked gift shop with science goods and local artisan products and a good range of Aboriginal pieces.

A small coffee shop is located at the Observatory as well.
