Explore the Solar System at Kingaroy Observatory

When it comes to passion, James Barclay has it in spades. Passion for astronomy. He’s the creator of the Kingaroy Observatory which offers visitors and locals a glimpse of the heavens above. Stargazing at Kingaroy Observatory takes place between 7 and 9 pm most nights. The website has more precise opening times that change each month.


It just so happens that right now is a good time to be looking skyward, because between May and September, Mars, Jupiter and Saturn will be in the southern skies at the same time.


For those looking for accommodation near the observatory, the Big 4 Kingaroy Holiday Park is just down the road. It has cabins, powered and unpowered caravan sites, and plenty of room for motorhomes and tents.


They also offer packaged deals for those wanting to stargaze with Jim. Give them a call for overnight rates and package information.
