Questacon is a great place for the family with young children to get a hands on education in science. The demonstrations in the lecture theatre are definitely great to see.

Great attraction

Tripadvisor rating

Very popular and understandable so. Parking costs $12 and payable with card only. Family entry $70. Regular shows, but be there early since we missed a show because it was full. Very busy in general...

School holiday fun

Tripadvisor rating
