Scienceworks is probably number one on your list if you want to discover things, with it being chockablock full of cool facts and interactive displays about science, technology, health and just general stuff. The museum is also hosting its AstroLight Festival this Saturday, September 8, which is perfect for everyone from wannabe astronomers to those who just really like Star Wars.

Throughout the evening, scientists, astronomers and artists will present talks, performances and hands-on activities in every nook and cranny of the museum and its grounds. Learn about how Australia's First Nations people incorporate the night sky into their storytelling traditions from Kamilaroi woman Krystal De Napoli, take an astronomy photography class for beginners or sink into one of the Planetarium's comfy seats for an immersive space show.

Of course, there will also be stargazing if the weather is good. Plus, a bar, cafe and food trucks will cater your night sky discovery journey.
