Great to take the kids to, very educational and informative. Highly recommended they even show that nights sky over Brisbane and what planets will be out.

Attended on a Saturday night to hear/see the Brisbane night sky presentation. A simple but interesting show in a great setting. Go early and travel up the mountain to the gardens and look out over the city. Take a walk in the Botanical Gardens. Really lovely place!

Having visited here and told others I am amazed at how few people know about it. A visit to one of the shows here is quite awesome. We have been several times, and every show has been fantastic. They cost little, about $15 or so, and there is also a wonderful static display of man's efforts to enter space and... More

A great show narrated by Robert Redford, followed by their own show narrated by one of their own knowledgeable staff. We then walked around reading all the exhibits. They had senior prices too, but we would have paid regular price as the show was well worth it. There were other shows following, but we ran out of time, Next time.

What I really liked about the Planetarium is that we were able to check out the various shows online and then plan & book our seats for the one we wanted. We chose Cosmic Collisions and were not disappointed. We were surprised at the different age groups attending this show from young children to seniors and everyone was satisfied and... More

Lived in Brisbane for many years and finally got around to visiting the Planetarium and seeing a show. It's such a great experience for the whole family. Chairs are tilted back and you look up into the dome for a 'live' full dome space flight through the solar system. The astronomer gives you masses of fascinating information, and the 'driver'...

I had no idea that humans had images for so far out in space - what an eye opener - the Saturday night live was more than a movie, they talked you through what you were seeing and went so far out into space with the imagery on the dome screen that it felt unreal. We also booked for the... More

My 9yo son and I went to see the Saturday Night Live show. It went for 50 minutes and cost $24 for the both of us. I couldn't believe how many people attended. The show was sold out so I'm glad that I rang ahead and got tickets put aside. It was a very educational and as well as seeing... More

I frequently visit the planetarium with friends and family and I love it more each time I go. The planetarium is situated in the Brisbane Botanical Gardens so often we will visit the gardens and Mt Coot-tha lookout up the road before going to the Planetarium. I suggest making a day trip of it and bringing a picnic lunch! There... More
