Friday Nights at the Sir Thomas Brisbane Planetarium
Looking for a date night that is out of this world? The Sir Thomas Brisbane Planetarium’s new Friday night program has mind-blowing shows that will take you across our universe. With some of the most exquisite imagery and amazing technological displays, the Friday night program features two unique shows that will fascinate and delight astronomers of all ages.
Dynamic Earth explores the inner workings of Earth’s climatic systems. Narrated by Liam Neeson, the show explores the relationship between the sun and Earth, and compares our planet to the hothouse planet, Venus. The 45 minute show includes a projected night sky tour.
Bella Gaia is a poetical musical journey around planet Earth, blending NASA science visualisations with cultural scenes from ancient Egypt to modern cities. It explores the relationship between human civilization and our ecosystem, and simulates the new perspectives gained by orbiting astronauts.
Located within the Brisbane Botanic Gardens, Mt Coot-tha, the Sir Thomas Brisbane Planetarium features space shows that will captivate people of all ages. Home to the Cosmic Skydome, the Sir Thomas Brisbane Planetarium has been a feature in Brisbane since 1978. While you’re there, don’t miss the Skylore exhibition, featuring Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander astronomy displays.
The Mount Coot-tha green leisure and adventure precinct has so much to see and do. Make a day out of it and stroll through the gardens before your show or hike through one of the many trails in the area. There are plenty of activities in the precinct for all ages so you can grow your lifestyle with more to see and do in a clean and green Brisbane.
