World Science Festival Brisbane

13 - 23 MARCH 2024

Queensland Museum

World Science Festival Brisbane (WSFB) is an acclaimed celebration of science, ideas and creativity, and the largest festival of its kind in Australia. Founded by renowned physicist Professor Brian Greene and Emmy award-winning journalist Tracy Day in New York in 2008, Queensland Museum Network (QMN) holds the exclusive licence to host WSF in the Asia Pacific.

Returning from 15-24 March 2024, luminaries of science from across the world will present the beauty, complexity and importance of science through diverse, multidisciplinary programming and conversations.

Further to that, Queensland Museum's scientists, curators, researchers and conservators will delve into the Museum's vaults to showcase some fascinating specimens and share insights into Queensland's natural and cultural history.

Visitors can engage in hands-on science, catch a rare glimpse of loggerhead turtles hatching, explore the interconnection between science and art, and more!

World Science Festival Brisbane is presented by Queensland Museum and the Queensland Government in partnership with Tourism and Events Queensland and Brisbane Economic Development Agency.
