CHILD’S PLAY

Paradise - - Traveller -

Ques­ta­con (ques­ta­con.edu. au) at the Na­tional Sci­ence and Technology Cen­tre has ex­cel­lent hands-on dis­plays on top­ics such as earth­quakes and the technology of fun-park rides; there are also an­i­ma­tronic di­nosaurs.

The Na­tional Zoo (na­tion­al­zoo.com.au) has a fine col­lec­tion of en­dan­gered species and the coun­try’s largest num­ber of big cats; a be­hind-the-scenes pro­gram gets you up close to chee­tahs.

Head with teenagers to CSIRO Dis­cov­ery Cen­tre (csiro. au/dis­cov­ery, right), where gov­ern­ment sci­en­tists can be seen in ac­tion in lab­o­ra­to­ries, and you can find out how Aus­tralia de­vel­oped wool­lier sheep, meatier prawns and fraud-proof plas­tic cur­rency.
