The Blue Mountains Observatory is a place perfect for a quiet and unusual getaway. The cottage is located in the out skirt of the township of Leura. It can be rented out as a short stay accommodation.
We have recently renovated the cottage and upgraded it to a standard that is in par with modern homes but still hold a comfortable cossy feel.
Astro-Tourism: The observatory can be available to guests of the cottage. An experience astronomer will provide a nightly tour of the night sky with our telescope. Please email us for further information with regards to this service.
Remote control Telescope: Our telescopes are available for rent online . If you are interested in research astronomy we can provide support to your most demanding needs. We have been involved with minor planet work for a number of years and we are knowledgeable in obtaining quality data.
