Scienceworks

Scienceworks – not just a destination to visit with the little humans in your life, or a distant memory from primary school days. Scienceworks is available for functions and events, whether it's a cocktail reception, gala dinner, corporate family day, wedding ceremony or just about anything else in between. The spaces available at Scienceworks range in size and scope, each with facilities and flexibility to guarantee guests have an unforgettable experience. After all, this is Scienceworks – you'd be hard-pressed to find a venue as unique. The Planterium Dome? Done. The Pumping Station, transfromed into a banquet event? Done. And the Scienceworks Arena? Yes, that's available too – for up to 1000 guests.
