Attraction Information

Discover the wonders of the universe at Wynyard Woodland Park Planetarium.

The observatory and planetarium are just 60m apart on the site of Wynyard Woodland Park and offer public observing sessions to the great expanse of stars. With the assistance of amateur astronomers from local astronomical societies, visitors can use the telescopes in both buildings to gaze up into the cloudless skies

There are public star shows, which are great opportunities to learn about the universe and what you can expect to see depending on time of year, such as our neighbours Venus, Mars, Jupiter and Saturn. Looking up on a clear night you’ll also see the moon resting in all of her silver glory, which is bound to send shivers down your spine!

Inspire astronomers or astronauts of the future and meet like-minded people!
