Looking to the skies of Tamworth
The Tamworth Regional Astronomy Club deserve praise for the contribution they are making to our region. Tamworth’s great open skies have long been the envy of stargazers across the country and that is why I am thrilled that the NSW Government was able to provide $1.8 million in funding for a new astronomy centre.
With the facility filling up with some of the largest amateur telescopes in Australia, it is clear that Tamworth will soon become a tourism hotspot for those who look to the skies.
I congratulate and thank the Tamworth Regional Astronomy Club for bringing this project to my attention so that I could assist in securing the funding required.
