Alloway Observatory is a not-for-profit organisation run by
a small group of volunteers.
The Observatory is open to the public on the first Friday of
each month from dusk. If it is cloudy the observatory will not
be open. Check our Facebook page for updated information.
Entry: $8 for adults | $5 for children | $20 for a family | $50
yearly family membership.
When: First Friday of each month
Time: At dusk – closed
How to Get there: The observatory is located on
Goodwood Road between a cluster of houses on the right hand side heading
out of town. The turn off is tricky to find in the dark. Head out along
Goodwood Road past Douglas Road on the left and then Thomassens Road on
the right. Slow down. Just after Thomassens Road on the right you will see a cane
siding turn off. The entry to the Observatory is just past here. If you
pass Alloway Country Club you have gone too far.
