Let your child's creativity soar with our flight experiences through the centre. All admission is discounted, plus 15% off all memberships purchased on the day.

- Learn about the different insects that take to the sky and meet the Questacon Phasmids (stick insects).
- Make a seed and send it whirling through the wind.
- Launch a rocket to our 7m moon and take a photo with our Questacon Astronauts.
- Meet the Questacon Flightless Fairy and help her discover why she can't fly.
- How do you measure up to the wingspans of our native birds? See what it really takes to soar like an eagle.
- See our Mini Spectacular Science Show and learn the science behind flight. Thrust, lift, drag and gravity - how do we overcome them to take to the skies?
