Great, informative place, with fantastic shows. We watched 'cosmic collisions' which my young children really enjoyed. Definately book online in advance, these shows sell out!

What a wonderful planetarium. The shows offered were high quality and interesting followed by a star show by the staff. We learned a lot about the Southern sky (we're from the US so this was all new to us). It helped us later when we...More

Full of history and detailed information, the Planetarium is a great, free activity for people of all ages. As a Brisbane local, it's definitely something I'd suggest people do if they have a weekend free and want something a little different :)

The only thing disappointing about our visit to the planetarium was we only got to view one presentation. They offer two shows daily, but the early show often gets cancelled in lieu of a presentation for school groups. That happened on our visit day. Otherwise,...More

No not at all, the shows are conducted inside. If you visit on a nice day, the gardens are lovely to have lunch and a wander through.

No, they have shows running during the daytime. We didn't see any telescopes. The shows in the planetarium are kind of like an auditorium with the screen on the ceiling, and lay back chairs

Hello! Entrance into the main gallery is free with lots of things to look at. I thoroughly encourage you to book in a show - they are very good value. I remember paying about $45 for a family ticket.
