Are you looking for a unique event venue this winter? Embrace the cold and hold your next meeting or conference at the Australian Academy of Science in the centre of the nation’s capital!

A Canberra landmark since its construction in 1959, the Shine Dome and its custom-designed furniture were created to reflect the inquiring and innovative nature of science. It was the first Canberra building to be added to the National Heritage List and has featured in television and movie productions.

Located next to the highly acclaimed New Acton precinct, the Shine Dome is a short walk from four hotels and the Australian National University, and within comfortable walking distance of tourist attractions, cafés, parking and city shops.

There are venue spaces for small to large groups. The grand Ian Wark Theatre is the centrepiece, with a variety of other spaces located on the building's outer curve.

Hot conference packages

The Academy is offering full-day conference packages at the Shine Dome starting from $49.00 per person*.

Your guests will enjoy arrival tea and coffee, morning tea, a hot soup-style lunch and mouth-watering afternoon tea. We also provide notepads, pens and complimentary Wi-Fi to support your event.

Contact the friendly and professional team to check availability and discuss your upcoming event.
