The exhibits and programs at Sydney Observatory reflect the Sydney history of the important site and include Astronomy, Meteorology, Timekeeping and Archaeology.
No matter what your age, there is so much to learn and check out at the Sydney Observatory. You can interactive with some displays, watch fascinating stories, look through telescopes, read old journals and much more!
There was lots of cool things to see and I cannot wait to go back one night to check out the stars in the telescope.
I also liked playing with the weather app, I was able to click on my birthday and see what the weather was like the day I was born .
It was also very interesting watching the narration of the Cadi Eora Brirrung Aboriginal tribe and learning about their perspective on how earth was created.
I like how they give adults and kids the opportunity to look through the telescope and see up into the sky. On our to do list, is to return one night to see the stars.
