“The Madawaska Highlands Observatory is a truly unique venue to hold a variety of events for up to 150 people. Located 60 minutes west of Kanata, in the stunning beauty of the pristine Madawaska Highlands of Ontario and situated on a 450 metre high plateau, giving it spectacular and panoramic views of the surrounding landscape. The facility is a zero-carbon, zero impact 30,000 sq. ft. building, generating all of its own energy requirements and totally off the grid. It even doesn’t need any water as it uses rain water. Amenities include a full service fine five-star restaurant, multiple board rooms and a lecture hall. Of special interest is our multi-use planetarium, with configurable backdrops and removable seats to hold diners and receptions. The facility also offers a special display hall, atrium and large lobby to add significant flexibility to events, such as product demonstrations. Several outside elements such as the large plaza, restaurant patio, covered terrace, amphitheatre and marked planetary trail add a whole other dimension to the experience.”
