You have reached the main content region of the page.

The Perfect Firestorm explores how the weather can affect the way fire behaves. How does a fire build? Why do some fires get out of control? We investigate how hot, dry and windy conditions can create the perfect firestorm, using science demonstrations to illustrate how each variable makes a difference.  

It’s a safe and exciting way to explore how the weather influences bushfire season, and how we can all observe changes in the sky and landscape to better understand fire danger.  

Please note: This show contains fire, some loud noise and explosions and may not be suitable for all visitors. Our presenters also briefly use a water spray bottle which may sprinkle you if you sit at the front. If you have concerns, please check in with the presenter prior to the show commencing.
