Artist's Description

John Tebbutt was a pioneer in the field of astronomy.

He was credited with discovering the “Great Comet of 1861”.

The Observatories, built in 1879 and 1894 by John Tebbutt, housed his telescopes. Here, he discovered many meteorological phenomena and conducted many measurements.

These historic sandstone buildings have now been placed on the National Trust list.

An old Cabbage Tree palm (Livistona australis) stands silently nearby.
