3 in Fun Ticket Discontinued

For over 20 years the 3infun ticket has been the best way to experience 3 of Canberra’s favourite attractions. Cockington Green, the Australian Institute of Sport and Questacon have offered engaging experiences and provided many thousands of visitors with enduring memories.

It is with sadness we announce the 3infun ticket will no longer be available to purchase. Our attractions are operating differently since the COVID-19 pandemic, and this has made it difficult to continue the ticket in its current offering.

Ticket holders are welcome to visit and experience Cockington Green Gardens and Questacon subject to availability of tickets. The Australian Institute of Sport is currently not offering tours for the general public.

All 3infun tickets must be redeemed by 31 December 2021. Tickets presented after this date will not be valid for redemption or a refund.

Redeeming Tickets:

Walk-ins are not available for 3infun tickets. Tickets redemption is subject to availability.
