Built in 1858, Sydney Observatory is Australia's oldest observatory.
A visit to Sydney Observatory can include fascinating lectures, daily or nightly viewing through telescopes, a virtual reality 3-D space theatre show or launching a rocket at a school holiday workshop. At night time visitors can get fine views of the Moon, the planets and some of the best-loved features of the southern sky. From the grounds of the observatory you can get wonderful views of Sydney, the harbor, and the Harbour Bridge.
Visiting the observatory, the grounds, and the exhibits is free. Some activities, such as telescope viewing, require the purchase of tickets. See the observatory's official web site (link below) for more information.
From Circular Quay station, follow the signs to The Rocks, and from there follow signs to the Observatory. It will require walking up a steep hill and some stairs.
