Questacon - The fabulous National Science and Technology Centre, is the perfect place to start a holiday with kids in Canberra. It is the only hands-on science centre in the Canberra region and the largest in Australia. All you need is some curiosity, imagination and a sense of fun to explore the science behind the world we live in. As they say - 25 years of inspiration and the smarter way to have fun!
You can experience an earthquake, see lighting created, freefall six metres on a vertical slide, play air hockey against a robot or swing head-over-heels on the 360 Swing.
For the younger members of the family there’s Mini Q where babies, toddlers, pre-schoolers and school aged children get an opportunity to explore the world through play.
Open 9 am to 5 pm every day except Christmas Day and there are always workshops in the school holidays. Admission fees apply.
