Experience the thrills of science in the Australian Botanic Garden, Mount Annan. Surrounded by the quintessence of Australian fauna and flora, our exhibitors will present all kinds of science in a way that will fascinate all generations. We start with a dinosaur that will transport us back into Gondwana times and finish with the newest technologies of our neighbouring universities. You will be able to see the scientists at work and experience some hands-on activities.

Have you ever 

  • pet a dinosaur? 
  • listened to a tree? 
  • fed a snake? 
  • interacted with a humanoid robot?

Our science workshops and shows will hi-jack you into this fascinating new scientific world!
