Outback Exploratorium

Outback Exploratorium

Outback Exploratorium is recognised as the most remote, non-government funded, not-for-profit science centre in Australia. Previously known as the Central Highlands Science Centre and first established in 1995, it is a community organisation with one aim - to inspire the minds of future generations.

In addition to  community science events like astronomy nights, open days, educational expos and school excursions, Outback Exploratorium also runs the ever-popular Curiosity Club & Science Squad for children school aged and younger who have a keen interest in everything Science, Technology, Engineering, Arts and Mathematics (STEAM). Outback Exploratorium has an adjoining gift shop that stocks a range of STEAM based toys and gifts as well as a range of locally made products that would suit every taste and budget.

They are always looking for volunteers and parent helpers to assist with their various programs, volunteers must have a blue card.
