Built in 1858 Sydney Observatory is a fascinating heritage site and public observatory. The quintessential visit is a night tour of 90 minute duration which includes telescope viewing and a 3D Space Theatre experience with a planetarium experience in cloudy weather.
Day tours are designed for tourists and include a Planetarium 'virtual sky' experience, solar viewing (weather permitting) and a 3D Space Theatre in 30-40 minute tours. Entry to the Observatory is free during the day, tours are a small extra charge ($10 adult or you can use the iventure Sydney card) but well worth it to experience modern astronomy and solar viewing with an astronomer.
Night tours ($18 adult) must be booked and prepaid.
