We aim to provide venues, exhibitions, programs and services which can be enjoyed by all visitors, including those with disabilities. Visitors using wheelchairs can access Sydney Observatory gardens and the East Dome telescope. There is no wheelchair access to the North and South telescope domes due to narrow and steep staircases in the heritage-listed buildings.
Bathrooms are located at the rear of the building and can be accessed from the grounds. There is a toilet with wheelchair access.
