    Hi
    How do you go to this star glazing place? How far from surfer paradise? Is it difficult to go there or locate the place since it is dark.
    Thanks.

      Hi, I booked the tour at one of the Gold Coast travel agents. You may also directly contact them at: http://springbrookobservatory.weebly.com/

      It is a small observatory lab where you can see the stars using a powered lens. Do check the weather before heading up.
