RvTrips' review

09 Feb 2017

On our first day in Narrabri, NSW we decided to drive to Narrabri Lake and then onto the CSIRO Australian Telescope at the Paul Wild Observatory.  

CSIRO Australia Telescope Compact Array Visitors Centre is about 20 kilometres from town and along Yarrie Lake Road. This is well worth a visit with displays, information boards and DVD room. It is quite amazing what information can be picked up by these dishes capturing radio waves from space. A giant track built at the observatory allows five dishes to move at varying distances to a fixed dish about 5 kilometres away. 

A walk around the garden is a must with information boards providing lots of data on the types of equipment used - very interesting. The Centre is open seven days a week from 8 am to 4 pm. There are a large number of kangaroos in the grounds and the signs saying to be aware of snakes.  

This observatory is well worth a visit and I suggest you allow plenty of time to read the information on display.
