“Fantastic Family Event”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 17 February 2012

This is a trippy and inexpensive way to take the family out for something different. The presenter is a bit odd, but you would expect him to be I guess, seats are comfortable and well set up.

“great place for a date at night”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 17 January 2012

The planetarium was recently refurbished and offers some really interesting shows narrated by celebrities like robert redford and geoffery rush (random). Great place for a date in the evening if you like to geek it up!

“Visit along with the other attractions on Mount Coot-tha”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 16 January 2012

Not the best planetarium in the world but well worth visiting in combination with the co-located Botanical Gardens and Lookout during a half-day trip to Mount Coot-tha

“Definitely worth a visit”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 15 January 2012

We saw a show called Cosmic Collisions and it was amazing - educational, spectacular and at times very beautiful. Afterwards someone talks about the sky we would see that night and that was very useful also. The commentator was polite but firm in dealing with people whose mobile phones went off - even though we had been asked to switch them off. The light from the phones reflects on the dome and spoils the show. The staff were helpful and efficient.
