Stop 1: Hobart

10am-10pm | 06/08 | Hobart

Stop 1 on the Tassie Science Road Trip takes you to Hadley’s Orient Hotel in Hobart, the perfect base to get the most from our Festival Hub at the Tasmanian Museum and Art Gallery on the evenings of 5-6 August, check out the Beaker Street Crawl and Dr Karl Live at the Odeon Theatre 6 August, and join one of our immersive excursions on Sunday 7 August, exploring our beautiful environments in the south of the state. You’ll find all of this in the Festival Program.
If you’re on the Road Trip or just in town for the Hobart weekend, we recommend staying at Hadley’s Orient Hotel or The Old Woolstore Hotel for 3 nights, checking in Friday 5 August and checking out Monday 8 August. When you book via the links provided in that last sentence, you’ll get a 10% discount for Beaker Street Festival and an invitation to a drinks event with Dr Karl on the evening of Sunday 7 August at Hadley’s Orient Bar. (In case you were wondering, yes, they will have special Dr Karl cocktails on offer, of course.)

A Seat at the Table

Beaker Street Festival’s pay-it-forward initiative, A Seat at the Table, helps make our science and art offerings accessible to those who can’t afford to purchase a ticket. Ticket buyers have the option to donate towards the cost of a stranger’s ticket. You won’t know who you’ve helped, but your donation will go directly to allowing someone else to access this great event.

Need a seat at the table? Email: [email protected] with your name, email address, post code, your age (if you don’t mind – it helps us gather data), which event you’re interested in, and whether you would like one or two tickets. Your information will never be shared or made public. If we can offer you a seat, we’ll notify you by email within a week of the event.
