Photographer's Note

The Italianate Sydney observatory sits on a hill (with the surprising name of Observatory Hill) at the northern end of the city area. It dates from 1859. This photo was taken from the northern (rear) side but it shows the 2 dome roofs that house the telescopes quite well. The surrounding park is very pleasant with lots of big old fig trees and good views of the harbour bridge and environs. You can visit the observatory both during the day as well as on selected nights for viewing the heavens above. Unfortunately viewing is affected by light pollution due to being near the centre of a city but by all reports is still a worthwhile experience.
