What we will do

This package is for 2 nights accommodation with your own personal night sky and observatory tour.

Rubyvale Motel is a great place to stay - you can check in after 2pm in a Deluxe Spa Motel Room. A double spa bath in a large motel style room - with a chilled bottle of bubbly in your fridge on arrival. The perfect way to start your visit to the Gemfields.

The Gems by Day, Jewels by Night Observatory is a fascinating tour into the wonders of the night sky above the Sapphire Gemfields. While the sapphires take up your day activities, the outback sky provides diamond nights.The powerful 14 Meade Schmidt-Cassegrain Telescope is perfect for seeing the magnificent clusters and colours of stars throughout the constellations. Look through the eyepiece at the wandering planets and the amazing sight of Saturns rings and Jupiters many moons. Gain an insight and understanding of the sheer beauty, size and immensity of the universe. Come and enjoy our outback night sky wilderness. We use laser pointers and telescope.

Rubyvale Observatory Sessions include a naked eye overview of the current night sky as well as abundant time on the telescope to see planets , stars and nebula. 

If you are lucky enough to be touring the outback and are not familiar with the night sky or just want to know a bit more then this is an enjoyable and entertaining introduction to the awe of the night sky.

About your guide

Rubyvale Observatory
Hey, I'm Rubyvale Observatory
I have lived in Rubyvale for more than 30 years and have a passion for the brilliant night sky seen from here. In 2012 the opportunity to build an observatory arose and we now offer an evening tour of the night sky. I offer a fun and factual point out with the naked eye of major stars and constellations as well as planets,meteors and satellites with the use of a laser pointer. Through the telescope we look at clusters, planets and nebula.
