Having the experience to view planets in detail and see nebulae and star clusters is an opportunity of a lifetime. Perth observatory offers these experience all year round, and at a decent price.

Hi, my friends and i are planning on joining one of the dark sky nights tour. We are thinking of taking a taxi from Pan Pacific Perth Hotel to Perth's Observatory, since non of us are able to drive. Could someone kindly advise whether its easy to get a Taxi late in the night, from Perth's Observatory back to our hotel? Or is there a tour bus that picks us up to and fro from the Hotel?
