#LikeCanberra - Questacon

Posted by AJ Blythe at Thursday, November 08, 2012
As you know we've just moved to Canberra. While we wait for our house to settle so we can move in, we're escaping our shoebox apartment at every opportunity to explore our new city. Coincidentally, Canberra has launched a "Like Canberra" campaign to highlight the experiences Canberra has to offer. I guess it probably has something to do with the fact 2013 is the 100th Birthday of the city. Either way, it gave me the idea to record our experiences as we discover Canberra...

One of the places Heckle and Jeckle (okay, The Hub and I too) were eager to get to was Questacon (science and technology centre). We ended up buying the family year pass, and as we've already been back again I think it will be money well spent. There is heaps to do here for kids and adults.

You follow a series of themed rooms each offering very different experiences. The biggest problem we found was time, and we've decided each time we go back we'll pick one room to focus on. Some of the coolest experiences was watching the lightening strike (the kids loved joining the countdown to the strike), getting your shadow photo taken, playing a robot at air hockey and the 6m free fall which the whole family did. Really, I did! Of course, it took me a good 5 minutes to stop shaking afterwards, lol.

Jeckle dropping 6m in the free fall (sorry about the sideways photo, blogger insists on turning them around for some reason).
