Physics is a fundamental science dedicated to solving big questions such as "where did we come from?" that have puzzled mankind for centuries. At a practical level, physics embraces the study of basic natural laws and explains how and why things work on scales ranging from the cosmos to the tiniest sub-atomic level.
Physics is located in the Physics Annexe (Building No. 6) on the St Lucia Campus. All enquiries and deliveries should be directed to:

Callers from outside the University will need to add a prefix to the extension number provided.
For extension 5xxxx, eg. 56789, add 336 = 336-56789
For extension 6xxxx, eg. 67890, add 334 = 334-67890
From outside Queensland
The prefix is 07 eg. 3365 6789 = 07 3365 6789
From outside Australia
The prefix is +61 7 eg. 3365 6789 = +61 7 3365 6789
