Beaker Street Festival is an annual celebration of science and art in lutruwita/Tasmania. We’ve packed some of the most engaging scientists, compelling ideas, and innovative artworks you’ll find in Australia into a ten-day extravaganza that covers nearly every corner of our beguiling island.
From the Festival Hub at the Tasmanian Museum and Art Gallery to small-group talks and dinners with scientists on the Tassie Science Road Trip to our Dark Sky Party at Spring Bay Mill, Beaker Street Festival invites you to explore Tasmania as you’ve never seen it before.
Some offerings are free, some are ticketed, and all are informed by the best available science around keeping people safe from disease, boredom, and misinformation. Please take note of entry requirements, and make sure to check out the full program — there’s a lot going on, and we don’t want you to miss any of it.
Covering more dates, and more of the state, this year’s program is our biggest and boldest yet! Kicking off in nipaluna/Hobart with two massive nights of talks, music, art, and science-bar merriment at our Festival Hub at TMAG, the Beaker Street Crawl around Hobart, performances at The Old Mercury Building, the Tassie Science Road Trip around the state (with ambassador Dr Karl); NOCTURNA — our Dark Sky party at Spring Bay Mill on the East Coast; and much more.
