Set your sights on the stars at the Launceston Planetarium in the Queen Victoria Museum and Art Gallery (QVMAG) at Inveresk. The Planetarium shows an ever-changing selection of presentations that will make you feel as though you are under the night sky.
Using a Zeiss ZKP3 star projector and a fulldome digital system, the Planetarium shows the stars visible with the unaided eye from the southern hemisphere. Each presentation runs about 30 minutes. A talk about the Tasmanian night sky, identifying the positions of the planets and constellations, takes place immediately afterward.
Shows are suitable for kids ages five and up. Tickets can be purchased at the QVMAG Museum's Visitor Operations desk. The QVMAG is open 10am to 4pm daily. It is closed Good Friday and Christmas Day. Parking is available at the Launceston City Council's Inveresk Car Park.
