Mudgee Observatory

Mudgee Observatory has been a private observatory for the past 10 years and used on occasion by the University of NSW, the staff of Sydney Observatory and members of the Sutherland Astronomical Society.

Open to the general public and catering for school groups, organised tours and any member of the general public who wishes to attend. The observatory is situated 15 minutes drive to the west of Mudgee in a location of extremely dark skies away from the town lights and the lights of Ulan mines.

A visit to Mudgee Observatory can be both entertaining and educational for people of all ages. The theatre and flat screen planetarium runs several features on the night sky and the Sun as well as many programs on space missions. The Observatory also runs daytime sessions for viewing the Sun.

Bookings are essential for both night and day sessions.
