Originally a signaling station for communicating with ships anchored in the harbor, this handsome building on top of Observatory Hill is now an astronomy museum. During evening observatory shows you can tour the building, watch videos, and get a close-up view of the universe through a 16-inch mirror telescope. A new digital Sydney Planetarium opened at the site in mid-2013 that showcases the virtual night sky to just 20 visitors at a time in a small theatre. Reservations are required for the evening shows only.
