Toowong, Brisbane Area
In 1978, the Brisbane City Council opened Queensland's first planetarium. The Planetarium is named after Sir Thomas Brisbane, a Governor of New South Wales in the 1820s.
The Planetarium is located within the Brisbane Botanic Gardens, Mt Coot-tha. It is a 15 minute drive from the Brisbane City centre.
Explore the Universe in the Cosmic Skydome, astronomy displays in the Gallery and spacecraft models in the Foyer - and see the replica Neil Armstrong Apollo 11 spacesuit. Skydome shows cover topics from the Solar System to Black Holes, and each finishes with a tour of the Brisbane night sky, presented by a staff astronomer. Weekend and holiday schedules include shows especially for children. The Mini-theatre has a continuously-running 30-minute NASA presentation on topical earth and space sciences, updated daily.
The Galaxy Gift Shop has a range of items to suit all budgets, including fun, scientific and educational toys, astronomy books, meteorites and fossils.
Entry to the building and displays is free; charges apply to Skydome shows. Special rates for concession holders, families and groups of 10 or more. Bookings strongly advised, especially during Queensland school holidays.
So much to see and do!
