The Centre makes science accessible, using interactive displays to engage visitors of all ages. There are five main attractions: Learning Tower, Cosmology Gallery, Solar System Walk, Biodiversity Gallery and the Observatory. The centre offers night time viewing activities, but book well in advance, especially if you want the special Aboriginal Astronomy Night session.
