Fodor's Review

You can enjoy great views of Victoria and the night sky through a 1.8-meter telescope, join astronomers and stargazers for summer-evening star parties, or catch a planetarium show at Dominion Astrophysical Observatory. The hilltop site also offers great views over the surrounding countryside.
