National Presence

Visitor update: COVID-19

In light of current advice from the Australian Government on social distancing, including a ban on non-essential indoor gatherings of over 100 people, and restrictions in place regarding non-essential interstate travel, Questacon will not be delivering any national touring programs from Thursday 19 March 2020. This includes the Shell Questacon Science Circus planned tours to ACT/NSW and central Queensland, National Questacon Invention Convention and Engineering is Elementary teacher professional learning workshops. While we are not touring, our teams of facilitators, presenters and educators will be working on exciting projects that we are planning to deliver using methods such as virtual excursions, YouTube and more.

Even though our physical touring programs are not currently operating, our website is open 24/7, offering a variety of engaging science activities and resources where you will find some fun science activities to try at home, along with other interesting science resources. If you would like a science kit, board game, educational resource or book delivered to your door, the Questacon Shop will continue to fill online orders while we have staff working in the building.

As the situation evolves we will update the website with more information.

If you have made a booking for an in-school visit by a Questacon program please contact the Bookings Team at or phone 1800 889 995.
