Star Wars flying into Canberra first

Usually Canberra doesn’t get to see visiting science fiction exhibitions and models. However, that changes this week with an Australian first for ‘Star Wars’ fans.

A full scale model ‘Star Wars’ x-wing will be “flying” into the Tuggeranong Hyperdome from this Monday, 19 February, for a week, on its first stop around the country.

The x-wing exhibit has set opening hours – 11am to 4pm Monday 19th to Friday 23rd, and 10am to 3pm Saturday 24th and Sunday 25th.

The businesses in the Hyperdome are joining in with Limelight Cinemas showing ‘The Last Jedi’ at $6 sessions daily, and discounts on ‘Star Wars’ merchandise at various stores.

Perhaps the best thing for ‘Star Wars’ fans will simply being able to enjoy a celebration of the universe you love.
