Sit back, relax on a bean bag and immerse yourself in the world above as we take you on a guided journey around the solar system, opening up the universe in a whole new way.

Times: 1:30pm on weekdays and 11:30am and 1:30pm on weekends, public holidays and school holidays.
Cost: Entry to the Bendigo Planetarium is included in Discovery general admission.
THE EARTH WINS
In addition to our regular planetarium shows we are also screening THE EARTH WINS in the Bendigo Planetarium. Shot entirely from the air on four continents over a period of seven years, the film THE EARTH WINS explores the delicate balance between man and Mother Earth, our inter-dependence and the impact of man's actions upon the Earth and her inhabitants.
