Grab a coffee from the nearby cafe and come over to Speaker’s Corner, the University for the People.

Steve Maxwell has a broad knowledge of Australian history and politics. His fresh and controversial approach will give you a point of view that might just change your mind!

Helmut Cerncic explains why Newtonian physics should no longer be taught in schools.

The sartorial Vladimir has a wide range of topics to suit users of social media, and he speaks from experience.

Mr Bashful has over 300 topics, so bring a question with you!

Other ratbags contribute too. And, if a passer-by has something to say, they might well be given five minutes to say it, up on The Ladder of Knowledge.

So, come along and argue with the ratbags. Or get on a ladder and be one!

If you decide you have had enough, we generously provide a large art gallery across the road.

Covid-safe information

We provide chairs spaced appropriately apart. But you can stand further back if you wish.
