A great place to visit with interesting and informative displays. Would have liked to have timed it better to see the 3D movie information

It was good to see the Dish just because... We enjoyed breakfast in the restaurant although, the options were limited.

Great morning at The Dish; we arrived in time for a talk from one of the operators. It was very informative and suited all ages who were gathered around. Entry itself is free and there are plenty of displays to look at. We opted to pay for 3D movie experience. It was worth the money. Grounds & bathroom facilities were clean and staff very friendly. A wonderful Australian experience.

It's an amazing experience to see the dish up close. Would love to have actually been able go into the dish but it's still awesome to visit this amazing part of our history up close.
