Join us at Beaker Street Festival, a week-long celebration of science and art in lutruwita/Tasmania – an island where both are abundant. Delve into today’s hottest topics with a program of events, entertainment, exhibitions, and excursions, while experiencing the best of Tasmanian environments and culture. Bored of basic pub chat? Share a drink with Australia’s most impressive minds. Keen to get in touch with nature? Experience natural wonders with the experts who know them best. Want to experience something genuinely new? Be the first to discover world-changing breakthroughs. Whether you’re a curious mind, an insatiable foodie or oenophile, or are simply seeking an off-the-beaten-path adventure, our festival promises a mix of wonder, flavour, and scientifically-proven fun. Expect a rich and diverse program of science-based installations, scientific talks, artist/scientist collaborations, live music and theatre exploring scientific concepts, scientist-led tours and dinners, and much more. Nurture your inner nerd! Feed your brain cells! Satisfy your thirst… for knowledge! With a Festival Precinct spanning out from the Tasmanian Museum and Art Gallery in nipaluna/Hobart, Beaker Street offers endless ways to satisfy your curiosity, including free and ticketed events. Now in its 8th year, Beaker Street Festival is Australia’s premier National Science Week event for adults, bringing warmth, connection and inspiration to lutruwita/Tasmania’s winter. See you at Beaker Street in August!
