Science will take centre stage from 20-24 March 2019 when World Science Festival Brisbane returns, and this is your chance to be part of the action with the release of early bird tickets on sale today.

Don’t miss out on your chance to snap up tickets to this popular annual event that will feature a spectacular line up of cutting edge science programs, conversations, international guest speakers, free events and much more.

Hosted by Queensland Museum the festival will explore topics from Advancing Medical Science; Life on Earth and beyond; The Story of Space, the coolest jobs in science and the world of wearable tech.

Minister for Science and Minister for the Arts Leeanne Enoch encouraged Queenslanders to clear their calendars for the 2019 event.

“In 2018 the World Science Festival Brisbane attracted more than 200,000 people,” Minister Enoch said.

“It’s one of the world’s most engaging, exciting and educational science events held on our own doorstep, and I am thrilled the Queensland Government has been able to secure the festival for another three years.

“And it’s not just the city science-enthusiasts who will benefit from this celebration – the Queensland Government is again supporting the delivery of the World Science Festival Brisbane’s Regional Program, taking the Festival to five regional communities in 2019.

“The first event will be held in Gladstone (1-2 March), then Townsville (8-9 March), Ipswich (17-18 March), Toowoomba (22 -23 March) and Chinchilla (29 -30 March), and I encourage everyone to be part of this incredible science spectacular.

“The World Science Festival Brisbane is all about bringing science to life and we’ll be offering visitors an eclectic program– from conversations tackling the biggest challenges in science, to performances inspired by global discoveries to hands-on workshops for families, all aimed at sharing the very latest from the world of science.”

Queensland Museum Acting CEO Dr Jim Thompson said the 2019 festival promises an exciting line-up of events that will be held in Queensland Museum and across the Cultural Precinct at South Brisbane.
