Free-fall down a six metre slide, experience an earthquake or challenge a robot to a game of air hockey.

And no visit is complete without watching—or starring in—a Spectacular Science Show. With over 200 interactive exhibits to explore in eight galleries, at Questacon you'll discover the smarter way to have fun.
