Public Exhibition

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.

Payment is cash only and children under 12 MUST be accompanied by an adult.

Bookings for school science shows and teacher professional development workshops are still available in the surrounding region. Please phone 1800 889 995 for more details.
