The Sydney Science Festival is an annual event that runs for ten days during August, coinciding with National Science Week as a celebration of Australian science.
The Festival’s multidisciplinary focus highlights the latest developments in science, technology, engineering, art and mathematics (STEAM) and brings science to life in an informative and fun way.

Its diverse program schedule across multiple venues attracts tens of thousands of Sydneysiders and visitors to the Harbour city each year. Popular events include presentations and discussion panels featuring leading Australian and international researchers and interactive workshops and exhibitions.
There’s something for everybody. Look at the program of events, and you’ll be sure to find plenty to tickle your fancy. The Sydney Science Festival is popular with schools, families and individuals of all ages for learning about and discussing science-related things.
Best of all, many events are free but subject to venue capacity. Selected events are ticketed via the relevant venue. Adult, concession, child (3 to 15 years), and family tickets are available for these events.
Presenting partners include Sydney’s leading universities, scientific organisations, and major global technology organisations. The Festival is organised by the Australian Museum and the Museum of Applied Arts and Sciences.
Most venues are easily accessible by private or public transport (trains, buses, ferries or light rail). Be aware, though, that there may be traffic delays in reaching any inner-city venues at various times.
