This observatory is privately owned and therefore a very unique experience for everyone. Rowan is very knowledgeable and shows a clear passion for astronomy when hosting guests. His enthusiasm made the night all the better. Congratulations on creating a wonderful place to visit and to learn something new.
This place is awesome! Set in Rowan’s back garden, you have your own personal observatory for the night, planetarium and two telescopes set up to show you some crazy astronomy. This was truly a one of a kind experience and Rowan and Jasmine couldn’t have been more welcoming and informative. Thank you for a truly unique and memorable experience!
thank you Rowan for the lovely experience, especially for my boy who is so into astronomy. really like the simple and cosy setting, we were really grateful to you giving my boy the chance to see the planets when the skies finally cleared up! God Bless! ���
It was a perfect night to view the sky and Rowan was perfectly set up to offer this experience. Rowan talked us through a few main beacons in the sky and photographed the Great Orion Nebula for us to take away. He also has a mobile planetarium, which I’m sure complements the outdoor viewing experience. Can’t wait to return and spot some planets and check out the Moon up close! Thanks Rowan.
Many thanks to Rowan & Jasmine for making our recent visit an enjoyable & informative experience. We were very fortunate to see Saturn & Jupiter up close which was a highlight for our 7y.o. son. Rowan is very passionate about all things space & is only too happy to answer any questions. Great school holiday fun – well done to you both!
