Getting to the Australian Museum

The Australian Museum is located on the corner of College Street and William Street in central Sydney, just across the road from Hyde Park and opposite St Mary's Cathedral.


The nearest train stations are St James, Museum and Town Hall. Each are of equal distance and are an easy seven-minute walk.

Please note that Museum Station does not offer lift access at this stage.

If you have a stroller or wheelchair, please note that your journey through Hyde Park will end in stairs at each of the museum corners on College and Park Streets. Level exit is available at the St Mary's Cathedral pedestrian crossing if coming from St James Station, and at the corner of College and Liverpool Streets if coming from Museum Station.


For bus services arriving in the city center, alight near Hyde Park or Town Hall and simply walk east along Park Street towards Kings Cross - a 7 to 10 minute walk.

Geology Rocks

Discover how geologists work in this hands-on super fun science workshop for 5-8 year-olds, especially suited for those too young to enroll in the Australian Museum's Scientist for a Day program.

Find out how geologists work in this interactive half-day science workshop. Children will learn about erosion, earthquakes and how land forms are made. They will get the chance to investigate various rocks and even try their luck panning for gold!

This fun-filled session is great if your child is too young for  Scientist for a Day program or you simply want to send your kids to a half-day workshop, rather than a full day of activities.

Meeting Point: Museum Entrance. Parents are required to sign children in and out before departure. Parents will need to pay General Admission if they wish to stay and explore the museum.

  • Age: 5 – 8 years
