Mars Yard

Explore the surface of Mars! The Mars Yard is a simulated Martian landscape created with scientific accuracy, which is part of a research project called Mars Lab.

The project allows high school students around Australia to take part in real scientific and engineering research being undertaken at the Museum by university researchers and students working on their robotic rover and astrobiology projects.

You can also meet our robotic rovers at the Mars Yard daily:

  • Weekdays, 11am & 1pm
  • Weekends, 11am, 12 noon and 1pm
