The Full Beaker

Want to do it all?

We’ve packaged up our entire Festival program into a stunning holiday for two, including accommodation, dinners, and all the Festival highlights!

Take in all the Beaker Street Festival Hub programming at the Tasmanian Museum and Art Gallery and Dr Karl Live at the Odeon Theatre in Hobart. Then continue along the Tassie Science Road Trip, stopping in Cradle Mountain, Launceston, and the East Coast. The Full Beaker includes nine nights premium accommodation at Hadley’s Orient Hotel, Lemonthyme Wilderness Retreat, Peppers Silo Hotel, and Spring Bay Mill. You’ll also get all the Road Trip scientist talks and dinners, and entry to NOCTURNA — Beaker Street Festival’s Dark Sky finale party.
