Questacon – The National Science and Technology Centre

For hands-on fun with an educational twist you can’t go past Questacon – The National Science and Technology Centre, located on the shores of Canberra’s Lake Burley Griffin. At Questacon you can free-fall down a six metre slide, experience an earthquake or challenge a robot to a game of air hockey.

Little scientists will love Mini Q, a custom-built gallery just for 0-6 year olds, and no visit is complete without watching (or even starring in!) a Spectacular Science Show.
