Very friendly couple welcoming people into their backyard to sit and watch the stars, with the occasional view through a telescope. Be aware that this is not a traditional observatory as you may be expecting, and make sure you bring mosquito spray and some warm clothing as you will be sitting outside for the evening.

Amazing place ! Really enjoyed the calm area. We had a beautiful sky and could see lots of stars, planets, and galaxies. Really appreciated how friendly everyone was, and the knowledge they shared with us. No question was left unanswered. They have Sues roo farm just around the corner where you can watch around 100 kangaroos getting fed every morning :). Will definitely recommend the space place to visit
