    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 Peter Starr.

    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

    Children's Tickets

    The child ticket is for age 4 years through to 16 years. A child must be accompanied by a paying adult. If a booking is made for a child only, the ticket will be cancelled and refunded.

    There is no charge for a child 0 to 3 years. The show is not suitable for children this age as they cannot see through a telescope. But you are welcome to bring them. During the presentation they will need to sit on your lap as we only have a limited amount of seats which are reserved for ticket holders.  Please email me at starr_peter@hotmailcom or text on 0488 425 112 if you wish to bring a child under 4 to ensure we have enough space.

    The tickets are not transferable to another date. I can refund if you wish to cancel with more than 24 hours notice.

    If you wish to cancel, 24 hours notice is required in order to receive a refund for the show booked. We cannot change the numbers on the ticket. I can refund the whole ticket and then you would need to rebook.More than 24 hours notice is required.

    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.
