Science expositions at the Canning River Eco Education Centre (CREEC), Perth, Western Australia, have been conducted over the last five years (2009-2013) during National Science Week. These expos aimed to enhance science understanding in the community, foster partnerships for science and promote science careers by providing a scientific feast for the senses. This paper focuses on the outcomes of the five expos. Key findings include constantly high participation satisfaction rates and increased overall attendance each year. The expos also consistently attracted people who had not previously attended National Science Week events, while partnerships for science steadily grew.
