Press Release

This school holiday period we will be running a 3D AstroTour for the general public.  The show will feature the 3D movies “Bigger Than Big” and “Extreme Places”, made by our highly talented Swinburne Spaceworks team.

11am, Tuesday 4 October
2pm, Wednesday 5 October
7pm, Wednesday 5 October
2pm, Thursday 6 October

Each will run for 50 minutes.

AstroTours are held in the Swinburne University Virtual Reality Theatre, ground floor of the AR building (AR104).  For a map and directions to the theatre, see:


The sessions are tailored for the general public and children aged 6+ should enjoy the movies and interactive presentations.

NB: The policy for Astro tours is that the minimum age is 6 years old and from an OH&S issue no prams/strollers are allowed in the theatre. A 5 yr old could come but only if there is a 6 year old or above attending. Definitely no child under 5 years old. Apologies for any inconvenience.

See http://astronomy.swin.edu.au/astrotour for more information.

Bookings are essential and can be made via email to ethackray@swin.edu.au or call Elizabeth Thackray on 9214 5569.

Cost is $10 per person which can be made at the door.

Please arrive at least 10-15 minutes before the advertised start time.
