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.

With shows daily, you will be guided through the cosmos, venturing to places you’ve never seen. Each 20 minute show explores the wonders of astronomy and showcases the limitless phenomena in the sky above.

During school holidays, the Planetarium show will explore the universe in new angles, guided by Discovery's holiday theme.  Visit our Events page to find out more about the next school holidays, or sign up for membership to receive newsletters with all the information you need.  You can also like us on Facebook for updates, as well as fun facts from the cosmos.
