The VCE Physics Days at Luna Park have been held the Tuesday, Wednesday, Thursday and Friday of the first or second week in March each year. In 2024 the dates will be Monday, 4th March to Friday, 8th March.

The cost to students in 2024 will be $31.50 each. Bookings for 2024 are now open. In the past, Luna Park invoiced the school after the event once actual student numbers are known, they now require a deposit of 30% to confirm the booking, which needs to be paid four weeks before the event.

There will be no aerobatic display this year, but there will be two flight simulators in the Pavilion behind the Ferris Wheel on each of the days. There will also be Defence Recruiting Personnel there as well.
