Astro Tourism Business

Astro Tourism business for sale.

I am looking for Expressions of Interests to buy and operate the Kingaroy Observatory in SE Qld hrrp://www.kingaroyobservatory.com either as an on-going concern attraction at the Kingaroy airport, or purchase the entire facility and move the buildings to another locality.

Established in Maidenwell in August 2004, Ttis 17 year old business attracts 1000's of visitors every year, to view the Sth. night skies through three, Meade LX200 14" scopes.

Located at the Kingaroy airport - 5 mins from town, the Obs. has a 6 x 6m all-steel frame office/display centre, 6 solar cells, 10 x 8m A/V air con Star Theatre seats 70, a Sirius 2.6m dome with a 6cm Coronado solar scope + Stellcam II colour video camera, + EQ5 mount, a 6 x 4m double amenities block, and a 8 x 5m all steel frame roll-off roof Observational deck and padded seating for up to 40 persons.

This business would suit those near retirement, a self-paying hobby or expand the Obs. into a much larger Astro Facility.

Inspections are invited to serious enquirers, after which you make an offer, if still interested. Cal or email James Barclay for more info. Priced around $380K ONO.
