Cairns Pop-up Science Centre

A large in front of crowd of people in a large open building.

The Shell Questacon Science Circus is a great opportunity for parents and children to share, discover and explore science together. You can encourage a  fascination and enjoyment of science by exploring hands-on exhibits. Come along and spin like an ice-skater, discover how fast you can throw a ball, freeze your shadow on a wall and test your reflexes.

Spectacular science shows are presented regularly during opening hours. You may see giant smoke rings, bricks being smashed on someone’s stomach or a Science Circus presenter lighting their hands on fire!  Science toys are for sale from our shop.

Admission

Adult $6, Students/Concession $5, Family $18, Children under 5 and Q Club Members FREE.

Children under 12 MUST be accompanied by an adult.
