Great White Shark

Paid admission

Perpetual Guardian Planetarium

Planetarium Show

Misrepresented, maligned and misunderstood, the great white shark is an iconic predator – the creature we love to fear.

Narrated by Bill Nighy, Great White Shark explores the great white’s place in our imaginations, in our fears, and in its role at the top of the oceanic food chain. Experience the strength and beauty of these animals by looking through the eyes of researchers and free-divers who swim with and tag great whites.

Recommended for ages 6 and over.

10.30am and 12.30pm weekends and school holidays
