If you're looking for something to do this Saturday / Sunday and happen to live in Sydney, the Powerhouse Museum is currently host to the Mini Maker Faire, a "family-friendly showcase of invention, creativity and resourcefulness". So expect robots, gadgets and gizmos and good helping of educational entertainment.
Ticket prices are very reasonable, with one and two day passes available:
1 Day Pass - Adults $15/Concession $8 2 Day Pass - Adults $22/Concession $12
If you have kids under the age of 16, entry for them is free and Powerhouse members can also get in gratis.
