About Pint of Science Australia

Pint of Science Australia is a national not-for-profit organisation with the goal to increase science appreciation among the Australian people. The annual Pint of Science Australia festival is part of the international Pint of Science festival which is running simultaneously in 26 countries: a celebration of science that reaches all across the globe.

The Pint of Science festival not only serves as a way to bridge the gap between scientific research and the Australian public, but also as a medium for researchers to practice science communication, and for volunteers to further develop skills that can facilitate their career progression.

With events taking place in 15 cities across Australia this year, the Pint of Science Australia festival provides a casual and inclusive environment where attendees can interact with our research-active community, ask questions, and deepen their understanding of the latest discoveries and advancements across the broad scope of what we call science. It’s a celebration of knowledge, curiosity, and the joy of learning, all fuelled by a pint and shared enthusiasm for the wonders of science.
