Still can’t beliebe that my husband and I just spent $198 to watch a 50 lecture on a screen smaller than the cinema. Fair enough that it was overcast and not possible to stargaze but you just can’t charge $99 each for this experience! We...More

Great experience. We went up early and saw the daytime view. Then we were taken to the special platforms and given a great show and lecture about the stars. Saw the rings of Saturn, even. The heavens are majestic.

If you’re in Queenstown you really have to give this a go. Gemma, Christine and Jess were just incredible with their depth of knowledge. They also made it funny with the humour.

Absolutely breathtaking southern sky, including telescopic views of several star formations, including the southern cross, Saturn, and the moon. Ashley is an enthusiastic and knowledgeable star guide with fun/ny commentary and jokes. Easy to understand (for us) as she’s from the states. We totally lucked...More

Absolutely! They run all day long! When I was in Queenstown we were there at different times on our trip - morning, noon, and night. You will LOVE it! Ask for a stargazing tour with my son, Christian Crook - awesome time!!!
