Mini Q ticketing

During peak visitation periods, such as school holidays and public holiday weekends, we conduct ticketed sessions in Mini Q.

These sessions are 40 minutes long and run throughout the day. This allows us to maintain the safety and enjoyment of all those visiting Mini Q.

Please note sessions are popular and tickets often become fully allocated. Sessions cannot be pre-booked so an early visit is recommended to secure a place. Mini Q tickets are issued at no additional cost from the foyer ticket desk, once a Questacon entry ticket has been purchased.

Children who are under 4 years old at the membership expiry date are not required on a family membership—they can enter free of charge!
