aBOUT THe PLanetarium
Starr's Planetarium has the most advanced 360° immersive 4K projection system traveling to venues today. Groundbreaking technology in our mobile planetarium has been inspiring and entertaining since 2005. We offer the largest choice of digital planetarium (fulldome) shows in Australia, and our presenter-led astronomy shows are delivered by engaging and experienced science communicators.
The dome provides a theatre setting for standard and 360° immersive 3D digital 4K images with surround sound that is totally interactive. We will show you the wonders of the sky above your head and then take you into the farthest regions of the universe and through our state of the art software, it will feel like we are taking you on a trip right there.
Our displays and equipment are regularly upgraded and the results are simply stunning. Our planetarium system was initially developed in Australia at Swinburne University Astrophysics Dept and now utilises the latest in global technology.
Our content is sourced from NASA and world-leading Astronomy content providers. We are also proud members of the NASA Museum Alliance.
We believe that our displays will be the most educational, entertaining and visually stunning programs to come to your venue.
The planetarium Space experience aligns with the new NSW Science K–10 Syllabus.
We will show you more about the night sky and the movement of the earth than you could ever possibly see with a night excursion. If you are planning to study space units in your class, our school planetarium display will prove incredibly inspirational and informative.
Starr's Planetarium is now in its 14th year, and tens of thousands of students have enjoyed this amazing and fun way to learn about astronomy.
