Obviously, stargazing is not available to day visitors, but it is mentioned here because the grounds of the Original Gold Rush Colony are a perfect place to watch the movement of the celestial bodies on a clear night.

Lie on your back on the grass paddock and dream about astral travel, or watch the stars and moon come into focus on crystal clear nights.
