Come behind the scenes at ANSTO and see how nuclear science is helping to deliver benefits to all Australians

We’re pleased to invite you to attend a tour of our Lucas Heights campus (Sydney, NSW) as part of the 2019 IPAC – places are limited so please register early

ANSTO leverages great science to deliver big outcomes. We partner with scientists and engineers and apply new technologies to provide real-world benefits.


Our work improves human health, saves lives, builds our industries and protects the environment.


ANSTO is the home of Australia’s most significant landmark and national infrastructure for research, including the OPAL multi-purpose nuclear reactor, the Australian Synchrotron, the Centre for Accelerator Science, and the Australian Centre for Neutron Scattering (ACNS) and the National Deuteration Facility. Thousands of scientists from industry and academia benefit from gaining access to state-of-the-art instruments every year.

The Lucas Heights campus tour will include a visit to:

§  Open Pool Australian Light-water (OPAL) multi-purpose reactor, regarded as one of the world’s safest and most reliable multi-purpose reactors;

§  The Centre for Accelerator Science, an internationally recognised centre for ion beam analysis and accelerator mass spectrometry.
