  • The Moon, including its craters and seas
  • Saturn’s rings
  • The moons of Jupiter
  • Mars and Venus
  • The Orion Nebula
  • Star clusters
  • Double and triple stars
  • Deep space objects such as galaxies and our Milky Way
  • Shooting stars


ABOUT THE VENUE

Just a short 10-minute drive from the iconic town of Katoomba, the lookout offers a fabulous 360° sunset vista of the lush Jamison Valley and escarpments. It's wheelchair-friendly and pet-friendly, with an abundance of parking options. There are toilets nearby and a large wooden bench to sit on or lay across with the binoculars. It's a large and open area, making it easy to social distance.
