Our experience of Greg's astronomy experience was very positive. It was a chance to explore the heaven's and challenge my own beliefs. Our children, aged 16, 13 and 8 all enjoyed it too. The added befit of multiple telescopes definitely adds a dimension that works well for families. It's a short trip from Broome but a world away from the... More

Greg is a self-taught astronomer with that supreme anti-academic skill of turning everything on its head. But a great natural teacher with his timing, wit, kindliness for the ignorant and a gripping string of gee-whiz moments. I loved spinning along at 1,000 miles an hour away from the sun; I loved twirling on Earth's celestial axis; I loved plunging downwards... More

We recently went on Greg's Astro tour after meeting him at the markets. We opted for self drive and the emailed instructions were very clear and easy to follow. We arrived early and were able to have a look through the telescopes before everyone else arrived. Greg was very enthusiastic, passionate and knowledgeable. We all enjoyed learning a little bit...

What an amazing experience, would highly recommend this to anyone . Greg was just a great source off information and viewing the stars and some off the planets through the telescopes was incredible.

We booked this tour as we heard a lot of good reviews from friends and family. We received a confirmation e-mail at 6pm and headed off to get ourselves ready, then an e-mail arrived at 6.15 cancelling the tour due to cloud cover moving into the area. We did get further information stating the next tour date, however it was... More

A really entertaining and interesting evening. Greg's knowledge is extensive and his passion contagious. He presents a relaxed and easy to understand overview of our incredible universe and everyone leaves with a greater understanding of how the galaxy 'works'. l thoroughly enjoyed it all.

Exciting evening in the bush and the best view of Saturn I have ever seen A little too much for my 10 yo by 9pm However the Wows from both kids at the telescope view of Saturn was truly worth the effort

I had heard about this tour over the years but never quite seemed to make the time having visited Broome a dozen or more times over the past few years, but my 8 year old has taken to star gazing with his binoculars so we logged on and booked our Monday night 8pm tour. What a magical experience of incredible... More

Informative talk, and nice hot chocolate . Seats highly uncomfortable for sitting for 2 hours. For what they are charging, they should buy some camping chairs or bean bags. They need to limit numbers way to many attended. as we didn't get to see much with all the kids moving the telescopes out of focus. so gave up waiting.

Most of us know the world is 'roundish' but Greg explains how we are still caught up in the world is flat language.Greg explains how we do this and begins to imply how this could be affecting us. By watching the stars change position as the 'show' goes on we got a clear picture of how the earth moves and... More
