  • This is a wonderful place to get a good orientation of how to look at the night sky in a different way. The owners are casual and knowledgeable. Questions were encouraged and answered well to a level....  more »
  • Excellent and enjoyable night viewing the planets and stars, very informative and learnt a lot and my highlight was seeing Saturns rings through a telescope for the first time.  more »

  • A relaxed and entertaining stroll through our sky. You helped explain the incomprehensible sizes and distances hanging over us as pinpricks. Lovely hosts. Thanks
  • Loved it! We had a large group and were treated to a BBQ and then we laid back in comfortable chairs, under the stars, whilst we were given a lesson in astronomy. Wonderful! ☺️
