Melbourne Planetarium is an extraordinary space. Sit back beneath a horizontal dome 16 metres high and see the night sky revealed like never before, or be taken on a journey of discovery through the Universe. We have a range of shows that can be chosen exclusively for your event, which could be anything from a product launch, private screening or seminar presentation.

Planetarium foyer

The Foyer is often hired in conjunction with the Melbourne Planetarium, although you can certainly use it alone. This space hosts ever-changing astronomy and space technology-themed exhibitions that are brilliant backdrops to dinners, cocktail parties and other occasions. We can also offer a private entrance here, so you and your guests don’t need to enter through the main building. Above the entrance, there is a large screen that can be used to display company logos and image galleries or to support presentations.
