Tour guides will meet you at the Visitor Centre at your scheduled time. If you arrive early please wait at the Visitor Centre for your guide. This is a secure site and all other buildings are off limits to the public. In an emergency you may call 076 900 0308. For queries, please email firstname.lastname@example.org.
NB: Please do not drive up the road leading to the domes. This is a “NO LIGHTS” research area where local and international astronomers are at work. The visitors’ telescopes are very near the Visitor Centre and not up on the hill.
