At 6pm on the 11th and 18th of April (Saturday nights), the Mt Cootha Planetarium hosts an exciting show called Saturday Night "Live".
My 8 year old daughter and I thoroughly enjoyed Saturday Night "Live". This spectacular 50 minute show made us all feel insignificant by the end. You begin in the skies of Brisbane, and are taken on a journey into our solar system, through the Milky Way, and then out into the universe!
The presenters were wonderful. I was relieved I hadn't brought my toddlers; it would have just been too hard to manage and enjoy. We finished the show and traveled up the mountain to the look out over Brisbane City at night. It was an interesting perspective to take in after the show.
Bookings are strongly recommended; so is turning up at least 10 minutes early, as we needed to get a token. Please see their bookings page for more details.
There is a large carpark at the Planetarium. The Planetarium and Mt Cootha Botanic Gardens is located along Mt Cootha Road, Toowong. The Great City Circle bus line stops at the Planetarium (bus numbers 598 or 599), and so does bus 471.
