“The National Science and Technology Centre”

Discover the smarter way to have fun at Questacon – The National Science and Technology Centre. There’s something for everyone as you experience science in extraordinary ways at this Gold Australian Tourism Award Winning tourist attraction.

Free-fall down a six-metre slide, freeze your own shadow, experience an earthquake or challenge a robot to a game of air hockey. Little scientists will enjoy Mini Q as they play, discover and learn in an exhibition specifically designed for 0–6 year olds.

Questacon’s eight interactive exhibitions feature more than 200 hands-on experiences, designed for visitors of all ages to touch, play and explore. Questacon’s exhibitions cover a range of science topics, from astronomy to zoology and everything in between.

No visit to Questacon is complete without watching—and perhaps taking a starring role—in a Spectacular Science Show.

Questacon is only a short walk from the centre of Canberra, and is in an ideal location for visitors to enjoy some of Canberra’s best tourist experiences.

When you need a break, Questacon’s Mega Bites Café provides the perfect spot to recharge and refuel. Questacon’s Q Shop offers a range of science-themed toys, gifts and souvenirs to continue the Questacon experience after you leave.
