Tebbutt Observatory is located on the Heritage listed Tebbutt Estate which dates back to 1843 and is situated on the Hawkesbury’s Peninsula, Windsor.

Family owned and operated our property offers a unique scope and history. Our observatory was operated in the late 1800’s by an Astronomer named John Tebbutt, who discovered two comets from the property and was the first Australian-born Astronomer.

For his work in early Southern Sky observations, he has been honoured internationally by having a crater on the moon named after him and nationally by being on the first Australian $100 note.

Located on a rural outlook, our established gardens, manicured lawns, observatory, and barn offer a variety of backdrops providing many photo opportunities and beautiful locations for garden ceremonies. Wet weather option available.
