Planetarium shows

Check out Australia's most advanced digital planetarium system! Strap yourself in to explore the stars as we guide you through a tour of the night sky. However, the show doesn't stop there, with all astronomy talks followed by one of our many immersive shows with topics ranging from astronomy to icebergs, dinosaurs to meteorites. Planetarium shows are performed on a regular basis in the Planetarium on weekends, school holidays and public holidays.
