The Canberra Space Centre (CSC) is located on the grounds of the Canberra Deep Space Communication Complex (CDSCC) at Tidbinbilla, about 35kms southwest of the city of Canberra.

The CSC offers visitors the chance to learn about the role that Australia plays in the exploration of space.

You can take in magnificent views of the largest antenna complex in the southern hemisphere, see a piece of the Moon thats over 3.8 billion years old, check out the latest images from across the Solar System and beyond, check out spacecraft models, plus flown space hardware and memorabilia.

Discover the foods that astronauts eat on the space shuttle and space station, watch a movie on the history and future of space exploration, take a hands-on trip around the Solar System or across the galaxy, or just sit back and relax in the Moon Rock Cafe.

Entry to the Centre is free - Open daily 7 days a week, between 9am & 5pm. Open during all school and public holidays (closed December 25th only).

When Planning a Visit, please note:
The Canberra Space Centre is located on the grounds of the Canberra Deep Space Communication Complex about 45 minutes drive southwest of Canberra city centre.

Due to the relative isolation of the Complex, you need to note the following:

Canberra Space Centre Mobile phone coverage in the area is limited
Canberra Space Centre General first aid assistance can be provided by staff but ambulance services would take
..up to 45 minutes to reach the Complex
Canberra Space Centre Roads in the area are sealed but rough surfaces can be encountered - please drive carefully
Canberra Space Centre The nearest petrol station is 25 kilometres from the Complex (we do not provide fuel)
Canberra Space Centre Roads wind through bush and farmland, so animals (kangaroos, emus, wombats, sheep
..and cows) do move across roads without warning at any time of day - please drive carefully
