School Holidays in Perth

Plan ahead and book your tickets online to the Science Centre for a roar-some school holiday experience!

You have reached the main content region of the page.

We’re back for the school holidays, come say hello and spark your curiosity once again.

Video The Scitech Science Centre is open!

Our prehistoric friends are ready to give you a roaring welcome back. Plus, all your usual favourites: from super cool science shows and adorable puppet shows to stellar journeys in the Planetarium and interactive exhibits in Discoverland.

It is essential that you plan ahead and book your tickets online at least one day in advance. We will be operating with a limited daily capacity and physical distancing measures and cannot guarantee entry for walk-ins.

To ensure the health and safety of our staff, visitors and community, we will be introducing a slightly modified STEM experience. You can find information on our COVID-19 safety policies here.

Step back in time, between 245 and 66 million years ago, and learn about the huge dinosaurs that roamed the Earth. Roar and stomp your way to discovery in our shadow puppet show. Join Buster the boulder and T-Rex, as you look at fossils and learn about the different dinosaurs.
