Questacon, Canberra

Australia might be best known for its exotic wildlife and beautiful landscapes, but you can explore its more scientific and technological side at Questacon. More than 200 interactive exhibits show you physics, chemistry, and engineering in action. Discover how a whirlwind of air and mist make things move at the Jellyfish Vortex. Test your response to visual stimuli and your hand-eye coordination at Batak. Although the museum aims most of its exhibits at kids, it entertains and educates visitors of all ages. Before you head to Canberra, plan trip itinerary details with our user-friendly Canberra trip itinerary builder tool , to make sure you see all that Canberra has to offer, including Questacon.

Where to stay in Canberra

To stay comfortably near most main attractions in Canberra, choose a hotel in the city's central district. If you're a bit more budget-minded, look for a guesthouse in a neighborhood farther away from the city center. Residential areas offer more parking and quieter rooms at a fraction of the price charged by big-name centrally located hotels. Rental apartments spread across Canberra serve as another cozy option and offer lodgings ranging from simply furnished to luxurious five-star properties.
