Big Picture Energy

Will we be able to afford to keep the lights on?  What’s Australia’s energy crisis all about? 

Experts will be exploring these questions and more at an energy event held at Queensland Museum during National Science Week. Queensland Museum will be open late and your ticket ($15) includes entry to the Museum. We invite you to listen to different talks about energy in Australia, wander through the interactive displays around the Museum, enjoy live music and view our exhibitions including Otherworlds, Wild State and Lost Creatures*, and free access to the Sciencentre.

This is an all-ages event.
