This March Brisbane will be the City of Science in a city-wide, free five-day science extravaganza.


In a non-stop, action packed program including hands-on workshops, science storytelling and audio tours to learning how to up-cycle your old electronics, or how to create a living laboratory in your backyard – City of Science is for the whole family to discover the fun of science.


From South Bank and Brisbane City Mall, to Mt Coot-tha, the Valley and West End, events and activities will span Brisbane far and wide.
