Win a golden ticket to World Science Festival Brisbane – including a staycay at Mantra Hotel South Bank!
Calling all trivia buffs, science nerds and knowledge-hungry folk – our city is about to become a playground for your open mind when World Science Festival Brisbane returns! Taking over Queensland Museum, the Cultural Precinct and various spots around the city for five jam-packed days from March 24–28, Brisbane’s favourite mind-bending event features a mammoth roster of conversations, demonstrations and spectacles that will make you see the world (and beyond) from a brand-new perspective. From saving humanity to sexy questions and even boozy experiments, there is fun and wisdom on offer for every kind of human being.
To celebrate the return of this weird, wild and wonderful event, we’ve teamed up with our curious comrades at World Science Festival Brisbane to bring one lucky reader the ultimate immersive festival experience. Your weekend will kick off on Saturday March 27 with extremely topical conversation The Pulse of the Pandemic, which reviews the year that was and looks at how we can pandemic-proof our future (fingers crossed). You’re then free to spend the afternoon at your leisure exploring the variety of mind-boggling activities and curiosities across the festival (many of which are free!) before checking in to your one-bedroom city-view apartment at Mantra Hotel South Bank. That evening you’ll be joining Dr Karl Kruszelnicki and a panel of scientists, historians and communicators, who will be examining our increasing scepticism of medicine, engineering and technology at Why Trust a Scientist?. Cap your night off with a drink or two at The Nucleus, the festival’s on-site bar that will be buzzing with free chats and tunes to enjoy. We highly recommend a morning spent by the pool before you check out of your hotel digs, then head to your final event Science vs Politics. The conversation will give a behind-the-scenes look at why scientists and politicians are often at odds, especially in a political system based on popularity and self-preservation.
The Weekend Edition has partnered with World Science Festival Brisbane to give one lucky reader the chance to win the ultimate World Science Festival Brisbane experience, including double passes to three jaw-dropping conversations and a night’s stay at Mantra Hotel South Bank with complimentary parking – valued at $579!
