What a fantastic place to spend a whole day. Interactive displays at every turn, very friendly and helpful staff. Great place to spend a hot day and only a short walk to Southbank for a cheap lunch!

For pensioner grandparents a concessional entrance fee of $13.50 each seems an expensive outing! Considering increasing costs of public transport and although entertaining, Sparklab only functions because children need accompanying supervision, not for any great scientific discovery or entertainment for adults!

This attraction is more suited for younger kids under the age of 10. A little bit overpriced but still a great attraction with different rooms and live shows throughout the day.
