Andamooka Observatory

We are a family owned eco-tourist business and independent off-grid bookshop with nocturnal tours and special events. Escape the days heat and browse our unique collection against cracking sunsets and starry nights. The after-hours bookshop on the hill has classic great quality Australiana, self-sufficiency, adventure, bios, recipes and more.  We’re selling books to raise funds for an observatory. In the meantime, we’ll have plenty of events including astrophotography workshops, camp oven dinners, sashimi under the stars, book club nights, meteor showers and night time tours.
