  • Very informative displays and impressive sight to see the dish being moved. Take a packed lunch to avoid the high prices in the café.

  • Fantastic place to visit. What a wonderful piece of technology and history, the observation area is quiet and peaceful. The gift shop and information Center has a lot to do and see for everyone. Great stop for families too. Good cafe and facilities. Highly recommend!
  • Well worth the drive from orange. You cant miss the 3d theatre (they wipe down all the 3d glasses), but budget 30 mins for the theatre and arrive by 3pm for the last show. The dish was moving when we were there and the little museum is very informative. The garden area has really cool "whispering dishes" where you can speak into each dish and hear what the other person is saying as if they were right next to you.
