Your visit to Questacon

Most of our galleries are now open with a number of COVID-19 safety measures in place. Signage in each gallery shows how to safely interact with our exhibits. Some exhibits can only be activated by our staff and others can be used by visitors.

We have a number of audio experiences and apps you can download to enhance your Questacon experience. If you don’t have your own device during your visit, our team can demonstrate how these apps work.

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 until at least 2022.

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.

If you hold an unused valid 3infun ticket and would like to visit Questacon, please contact or Phone: (02) 6270 2800


If you hold an unused valid 3infun ticket and would like a refund, please contact or Phone: (02) 6230 2273.
