“A Must Do in Broome”
Reviewed July 31, 2013

Broome is a fantastic place to view the night sky and Greg's Astronomy Experience made the viewing informative, educational and fun. He explains the night sky in layman's terms and leaves you with an appreciation of where we sit in the universe and wanting to know more. Seeing Saturn through his telescopes was a highlight. Will be back next time I'm in Broome.

“Great experience that you take home with you!”
Reviewed July 31, 2013

We spent a really enjoyable night out with Greg and the stars! He explains easily and understandable and from that night on, we watched the stars more intensively.
Even a week later when we were already in the Northern Territory and wondered about a star, we could ask Greg!
He seems to know everything about it and is so passionate about astronomy that you really get in to it, too!

Back in the Northern hemisphere, I still remember the words and look at the stars and try to see more and more every night!

And yes, in Broome, you can also see parts of the Northern stars! I think that and the beautiful view of the moon and saturn that night impressed me the most ;-)

“See the stars come out”

The perfect place for viewing the Galaxy, Greg provided a passionate explanation of the world we live in. The two hours was full of interesting facts and data about our place in the universe.
Well worth it,

“Inspirational event”
Reviewed July 3, 2013 via mobile

Greg's passionate tour of the cosmos, and clear explanation of what our planet actually does was great. He held a diverse group's interest for the whole session, including a large contingent of kids - not to be missed if you are in Broome!
