Destination Revisited

Observatory Park is located in the heart of the Sydney central business district. It is situated near the Harbour Bridge and is the site of a number of historical buildings including the historic Sydney Observatory. The site of the building was chosen because it was clearly visible from the harbour. The Sydney Observatory is a heritage-listed meteorological station, astronomical observatory, function venue, science museum, and education facility located on Observatory Hill at Upper Fort Street, in the inner city Sydney suburb of Millers Point. It is one of the most significant sites in Australia’s scientific history. It has a central role in the history of timekeeping, meteorology and astronomy.
