Welcome to the Astronomy Capital of Australia.
Get ready to be amazed by the spectacle that is the 4m AAT, Australia's largest telescope. Join us for a tour from the bottom to the top, as we wander through the dome and out around the catwalk, approximately 50m above the ground. Take in the stunning, unimpeded views of the Warrumbungles National Park and look out, over 200kms in any direction. Then it's back into the dome for more breathtaking marvels of science and engineering. During our time in the dome, you'll hear about the research being done, the history of the site and so much more. You won't want to miss this amazing chance to enjoy this marvel in person.
For the more adventurous traveler, we have the beautiful David Allen Trail Tour. This walk takes you out to the highest point of the stunning Mt Woorat. Marvel at the beauty of the Warrumbungles, as the stunning white domes highlight the mountain ranges behind them. While we wander along, you'll hear about the history, science and spirituality behind the mountain, and learn about how the Siding Springs of today came to be. Come join us in celebrating the work being done and make sure to bring your camera, you won't want to miss the marvelous scenery.
