Experience the wonders of star gazing and learn all about astronomy when you visit Warrumbungle National Park. The famous Siding Spring Observatory overlooks the Warrumbungle mountain range, and their expert will share their knowledge with you during this activity. You'll go on a journey into space under the mesmerising Warrumbungle night sky. Nearby Coonabarabran is known as the 'Astronomy capital of Australia' and Warrumbungle National Park – the only Dark Sky Park in Australia – is the ultimate place to see infinite stars.
