Event Information

Night Sky and Telescope Viewing

 View the planets, stars, nebulae, and galaxies through telescopes.

Constellations pointed out with a laser pointer

Includes 1 photo of a nebula taken through the 20" Telescope with your Canon or Nikon SLR camera.

 Your Tour Gudie will be Brett Richards.

This is an outdoors activity and Coonabarabran can get very cold at night. Please bring plenty of warm clothing

Please take note of the directions to find us as we cannot be located with a GPS. We are 9.0km from the clocktower in Coonabarabran. Head west from the clocktower along Dalgarno St. Take the 2nd right into namoi st then the 3rd left into Eden St, then follow out of town for 8.4km. The road changes name to Timor Rd (ignore what road the gps tells you as its incorrect). We are on the left. If you see the Warrumbungle Mountain Motel on the right you have gone to far. You will see some kangaroo signs. These signs are not joking! We are 400m before it.

If you are travelling from the Warrumbungle National Park, it is about 24km. Head towards Coonabarabran. When you exit the park you will see the Siding Spring turn off. From there it is another 14km towards Coonabarabran.Just before us you will see the Mountain Motel on the left. We are 400m past that on the right. Take your time as it is kangaroo country.

When booking its important to leave an Australian Mobile phone number you will have with you on the day so we can contact you if there is a change or cancellation. If you dont have one, email starr_peter@hotmail.com with a way of contacting you whether its a motel phone number or email address

Terms & Conditions

Cancellations 

If you wish to cancel, 24 hours notice is required in order to receive a refund for the show booked. We cannot transfer tickets to another night with this ticketing system or change numbers. If you wish to change nights you need to rebook the night you wish to come.

Overcast evenings  (PLEASE READ)

The show is weather permitting.

We cancel the show if we think it will be overcast for most of the show.

An email is sent and a text message is sent an hour before the start time advising if the show is cancelled. This is sent to the number you provided when booking. If you are staying out of range like at the Mountain Motel, or Bakala Farm (Piliga Pottery) please advise so we can call them on their landline to advise you.

If your travel time is more than 1 hour, please contact us to ensure the show is going ahead before you leave to save you a long trip for nothing. 

If it is cloudy and you have not received a text please text on 0488 425 112 asking if the show has going ahead or not as if it is cancelled there may be no one there to advise you.

A full refund is given when the show is cancelled.

Weather by its nature  can be very unpredictable at times. Sometimes we get it wrong with the weather we think it will be cloudy. We cancel the show. Then it ends up being clear. The opposite can happen as well. So apologies in advance if this occurs.
