Geraldine Observatory

A visit to Geraldine Observatory is a truly unique experience!

Peter Aldous, passionate astronomer, welcomes visitors to his private observatory to see and learn about the night sky.  Peter owns an impressive array of telescopes and equipment which together form the very best private observatory in the country.   Check this great clip from  showcasing Peter and the stunning Geraldine landscape and night sky.

Peter has been interested in Astronomy since boyhood and been seriously involved for nearly 50 years.  He has a wealth of knowledge to share and by hosting small groups, everyone has the opportunity to see and ask questions.

 Peter is particularly keen to welcome groups of young people and allows them to get ‘hand-on’.
