Visitors information

The Australian Academy of Science’s Shine Dome is uniquely Canberra. The dome has been a much-loved feature of the Canberra landscape since its award-winning construction in 1959 and was National Heritage listed 2005. Its modernist fittings and furnishings are timeless and elegant, and its spaces airy and retro-futuristic. Located next to the highly acclaimed New Acton Precinct, the dome is a short walk from four hotels and the Australian National University, and within comfortable walking distance of tourist attractions, cafes, parking and city shops.
