Questacon has long had a reputation as an awesome destination for curious kids with its hands on galleries showcasing science in action. And the good news is it's not only for older kids - Questacon has a gallery called Mini Q and it's entirely designed with the 0 - 6 year age bracket in mind.

Mini Q has taken the best elements of soft play, role play, sensory play and water play and wrapped them up like a big scientific gift for your little tot to explore. The space is broken into different zones with each one encouraging exploration, experimentation and education. There is a soft play area, a sensory zone, a huge water play space (with waterproof smocks provided to keep enthusiastic explorers dry - phew!) and several role play areas with a vet, bakery, service station and construction site to choose from.

Mini Q is family friendly and they've thought of everything to make your visit easy. There is a space for tiny babies separated off from the main areas which means parents juggling a busy older toddler and a teeny baby can relax knowing both will be safe and entertained. As well as the baby play space, there are feeding areas and a spotlessly clean kids and parents toilet which definitely gives Mini Q a few bonus points.

Each play zone has a board explaining what you can do to help your kid get more out of the experience depending on their age. As a parent, seeing the way Mini Q got my little one asking questions (so many!!) while having the absolute time of her life was a joy. It proves learning can, and absolutely should, be fun.

Entry to Mini Q is free with your Questacon entry so you can also branch out and explore the other galleries as part of your entry fee ($23 for adult, $17.50 for kids and under 4s absolutely free). Questacon also has the newly refurbished Atomic Café onsite.
