What a wonderful planetarium. The shows offered were high quality and interesting followed by a star show by the staff. We learned a lot about the Southern sky (we're from the US so this was all new to us). It helped us later when we...More

Full of history and detailed information, the Planetarium is a great, free activity for people of all ages. As a Brisbane local, it's definitely something I'd suggest people do if they have a weekend free and want something a little different :)

Hello! Entrance into the main gallery is free with lots of things to look at. I thoroughly encourage you to book in a show - they are very good value. I remember paying about $45 for a family ticket.
