Planetarium shows

Strap yourself in to explore the stars through our Zeiss star projector as we guide you through a tour of the night sky. However, the show doesn't stop there, with all planetarium shows followed by one of our many immersive shows with topics ranging from astronomy right through to dinosaurs. Planetarium shows are performed on a regular basis in the Planetarium on weekends, school holidays and public holidays.
