Come and catch the stars at Space Place. 

Let the experienced astronomy educators at Space Place inspire your students about the wonders of our unique southern skies. Space Place relaunched in March 2010 with a brand new astronomy education experience.

A two minute walk from the top of the Cable Car, Space Place offers innovative, curriculum linked programmes that will excite and motivate your students and help them learn about our place in space.

Space Place's LEOTC supported programmes include a 45-minute presentation in its state of the art, digital planetarium, time to explore the interactive multimedia exhibition, and a choice of workshops targeted to your specific learning objectives.

Pre- and post- visit activities and resources are also provided to complement your trip.
