In 1978, the Brisbane City Council opened Queensland’s first planetarium. The Planetarium is named after Sir Thomas Brisbane, a Governor of New South Wales in the 1820s. Sir Thomas Brisbane established Australia’s first significant observatory and was responsible for the first extensive mapping of the southern sky. Here you can see fragments of asteroids and spacecraft models, watch shows on various astronomical topics, observe far, far away stars with telescopes, and much more.
