Children will be given free entry to mark the occasion (admission is usually $8 for children over four years old), and there'll be a party atmosphere with balloons, a sausage sizzle and face painting. Be there for 2.00pm to see the birthday cake being cut, and also to get a piece.

Activities include working on a huge paper mache earth, and there'll be extra screenings of Tycho to the Moon in the planetarium at 10.15am and 1.00pm and The Problem with Pluto at 3.00pm.
