Adelaide Indoor Play, Discover

The Planetarium at Mawson Lakes is the only planetarium in Adelaide and gives the whole family a fun and informative learning experience.

The Adelaide Planetarium houses a Zeiss Jena ZPK1 star projector that displays an artificial night sky onto the eight-metre diameter domed ceiling and can show the position of constellations, stars and planets. The projector displays the relative position and brightness of about 5,000 stars that are visible from the Southern Hemisphere.

Within the dome-shaped theatre, you will be immersed in a realistic simulation showing the position of constellations, stars and planets. Feeling as if the earth is moving, you’ll learn about the earth’s rotation during the course of the night.
